London. Lewis E. Nunn, Builder and Decorator. 1937.
Rectangular booklet 5 3/4 x 7 1/4 inches featuring creative uses of wall and ceiling paper to achieve striking results in five model rooms: a bed room, two lounges (living rooms), a dining room, and a bathroom. A 4 1/4 x 4 3/4 inch color illustration of each room is accompanied by two samples (base and accent) of the wallpaper employed (most often textured) to achieve harmonious and visually compelling results. At the rear of the booklet are four samples termed "colored ceiling papers." Light crease to one corner of front cover, narrow line of toning and dampstaining to cover edges; otherwise good clean condition. This distinctive Lewis E. Nunn booklet 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 and features a wide range illustrating home interiors and furnishings.
