Format: Hardcover
Fabrics & Wallpapers For Historic Buildings is a new hardcover edition compiling the previously published references "Fabrics for Historic Buildings" and "Wallpapers for Historic Buildings". An immense catalog of patterns appearing from 1700 to 1900, Fabrics & Wallpapers For Historic Buildings include more than 600 fabric types and patterns, more than 1,000 authentically reproduced wallpaper designs, new information on twentieth-century fabrics, useful advice, and much more. The many illustrations are in black-and-white but have exquisite detail. A superb reference for historic and periodic consultation and inspiration.
