|Is it real or is it wallpaper?|
|Foil wallcoverings today flash forward another thirty years from those on the |
late 1970s which won me back to the art and craft of wallpapering.
|By the early 19th century, the French became quite adept at block printing |
mural-like wallpaper made to look hand-painted. This one had ten panels.
|Even as late as 1877, the French were still "hand-blocking" wallpaper |
at a time when the British were printing the stuff by the mile.
|British wallpaper of the Victorian |
era was heavily floral. This is mild
compared to some designs.
|Wallpaper as I remembered it.|
|Our foyer now sports a slightly less |
textured version of this extreme.

|Children's wallcoverings are quite gender specific.|
