Wallpaper: The Ultimate Guide
Charlotte Abrahams
Quadrille Publishing, $75

In this stunning book Charlotte Abrahams gets to the heart of the exciting contemporary wallpaper scene. Divided into three main areas of design – pasted pictures, fabulous florals and architectural illusions – each section begins with what is happening now, then traces the history through key moments, developments, designers and manufacturers to the origins of the style.

New designers and established manufacturers, funky layered images and classic designs, the latest visual technology and hand-painted historical scenes are all discussed and illustrated. Expert advice on selecting colour schemes, mixing florals with geometrics, using large and small prints, zoning and other techniques is also included. Wallpaper really is the ultimate guide.
