Papers with Pedigree

Historic wallpapers aren't found just in museums or old houses. They're still being made today for anyone who wants an authentic piece of the past. These papers, from the likes of Adelphi Paper Hangings, Farrow & Ball, and Bradbury & Bradbury Art Wallpapers, use silk-screening or block printing
—by hand or via mechanized rollers—to re-create the look and feel of coverings that date as far back as the 1700s.

Shown: Bradbury & Bradbury prints its patterns, such as the Arts and Crafts–style Lion and Dove frieze (shown) using silkscreens and for touch-ups, hand painting.
