London. Arthur Sanderson & Sons. No date. Ca. 1937.
Rectangular booklet 5 x 8 inches featuring creative uses of wall and ceiling paper to achieve striking results as seen in six model bed rooms or lounges (living rooms). A color illustration of the room is accompanied by two wallpaper samples (base and accent) of the paper employed on the walls (most often textured) to achieve harmonious and visually compelling results. At the rear of the booklet are four samples termed "tints for ceilings." This distinctive Arthur Sanderson and Sons booklet alternates three 4 1/4 x 5 inch color illustrations of rooms with three folded 3-panel color illustrations (unfolding to 7 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches--titled "four walls at a glance") for a total of six rooms. Each of the rooms depicted is accompanied by two wallpaper samples featured in the color illustration of the room. The booklet, in excellent condition, clean and bright, is a remarkable example of creative design employed in marketing high-quality wall and ceiling coverings and would make an excellent addition to a design library, as it captures both the look and feel of Deco wall decor.
