Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
This is a large, heavy (5 lbs.) coffee table book. It has large colour illustrations that are well labeled explaining what is pictured. There is text to explain the history of wallpaper as it progresses through the styles of different years. Subjects covered are; the history, panoramic wallpaper, the different styles, colour and patterns, a world tour of styles, the new wave, and couture. Listings of wallpaper collections all over the world are included with web sites, as well as designers and stores and an index.

The pictures are well done and elegant; however there are several instances where interesting wallpapers are described, but not pictured - those done in rock and roll patterns and of a space shuttle launch.
What a reader should know is that there are no directions on how to wallpaper or on any manner of `do- it- yourself' handiwork. In the introduction the statement is made that wallpaper is easily replaced, but we are given no hint on how this is accomplished.

This is a book that gives the style, the history and many examples of wallpaper. It is one that decorators would like and of course those who love wallpaper.

I saw this in a museum bookstore but was not willing to pay list - then came home and found a used copy for a very reasonable price. Stunning photos of a wide range of historic to very modern papers. Not a comprehensive history, just a fun and pretty book!
