Wallpaper in America: From the Seventeenth Century to World War I
An acknowledged expert in the field, Catherine Lynn surveys the most distinctive styles used in America from the 17th century, when their presence can first be documented, to World War I, when plain white walls become fashionable. Drawing from sources across America and in Europe, this stunning visual reference documents the changing tastes in pattern and color preferences. Ms. Lynn also documents what patters were used in which room of the house, and how the papers were hung, with borders or without. Explains how to identify handmade paper and how to distinguish block-printing from machine-printing. Richly illustrated with 102 color plates and over 245 b/w photos. Hardcover, 533 pages, publisher: W.W. Norton & Company, 1980.
