Review: Beginning with the individually painted sheets that formed the first papers in the 15th century, this authoritative volume by leading experts in five countries unfolds the story of wallpaper. It encompasses English flocked papers with repeats as large as seven feet, spectacular French panoramas encircling an entire room, and exquisitely printed bowers of roses. By 1900 technical inventiveness had put new kinds of wallcoverings and a vast choice of patterns before a world-wide market, design was revitalized by reformers like William Morris, and the 20th century saw a struggle between traditional ideas and radically 'modern' styles - Jugendstil, Art Deco, Bauhaus, and post-war 'Contemporary' designs.
