- Love it or loath it, wallpaper has been a part of British homes for hundreds of years. Wallpaper played an important part in making a house feel like 'home', and the industry was an important part of the British economy. Wallpaper seems to be perpetually on the point of 'coming back into fashion'; whether or not we would choose it ourselves, it continues to provoke strong memories of homes we lived in in the past. This book traces the history of wallpaper in Britain, taking a look at how new technologies influenced trends, and the work of some of the nation's favorite wallpaper designers. From flock to William Morris and back again, this book looks at wallpaper's surprisingly controversial place in shaping our sense of home.
