Pamphlets, journals, magazines and, on occasion, books published by a manufacturer to publicize their product lines. Though they have become harder to find, we look for older (i.e. 19th to mid- 20th Century) examples of the genre.

To best view unusally large image, click to maximize and look for orange sizer icon at the lower right to enlarge further.

Upaginated. First three pages are promotional pages (rectos only) for three brands of house and interior wall paints with color chips (some chips are stuck to opposing recto surfaces) offered by Holman's. Wallpaper catalogue contains 200+ wallpaper samples. The assortment is primarily art deco in pattern style - some reference florals, swags and flourishing of older wall-covering styles and a few figurative patterns are included, but the majority is abstact and geometric. Some other features are: most samples are highly textured and many of them have one or more coordinated border patterns bound in. Overall the color palettes are medium to muted in color though accompanying borders are more saturated. Only a handful of wallpaper swatches have occasional dog-eared corners or tears; two leaves have extended (or were bound in as slightly larger sheets) beyond the average dimension of the book and are now badly chipped along their edges.

A large, rich resource of surface pattern designs and textures. Highly recommended as a reference for designers or material for collage artists.

This enormous volume weighs 20 lbs. hence the shipping charge (which includes insurance and a delivery confirmation) for addresses in the continental U.S.    [Book ID # 1646]
