While *weeding in the stacks we often come across items that we call “gems.” Those rare fragile items that either don’t circulate very often or those that are are not in great condition to be checked out.
Decorating (747) is one of the areas I was weeding in and found this great book on Mid-Century wallpaper. Mid-Century modern is an architectural, interior, product and graphic design that describes mid-20th century developments in modern design, architecture, and urban development from roughly 1933 to 1965. It is now recognized by scholars and museums worldwide as a significant design movement.
The book is Neue Dekorationsstoffe Tapeten und Teppiche, that translates to new decorative fabrics wallpapers and carpets. This book contains many images of Mid-Century wallpaper in black and white. The interesting thing about the book is, it contains about 30 full color original wallpaper pattern pieces from that time period, complete with texture.
If you are a lover of Mid-Century modern come take a look at this book. The book is reference and must be used in the library. Click on the cover above to connect with our catalog.
