Thames & Hudson publishes eye-catching book 'An Anthology of Decorated Papers'

theface_anthofdecpapers

In mid-October, Thames & Hudson will release a truly unique publication, An Anthology of Decorated Papers. Compiled by Philippa Marks, the expert of the topic from the British Library, the material relies entirely on the Olga Hirsch Collection. Olga’s husband, Paul Hirsch, was a noted collector of original music manuscripts at the turn of the century. To take her fair share in managing and preserving the precious material, Olga trained herself in the art of bookbinding. While keeping the sheets in top form for conservation, she became fascinated with the wrappings of the editions, and she set out for a thorough research on the topic. Her passion led her to end up with a collection of over 3500 decorated papers from across the globe and 130 books on decorative wrappings, which finally was handed over to the British Library in 1969.

For the first time now, a selection of the most outstanding pieces is available to the public in a book form. The anthology contains over 250 paper sheets and quite a few wrappings, originating from the 16th-20th centuries, and coming from all around Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. The material is presented in groups according to key decorating techniques, from hand-marble through brocade to mass-produced papers, and is accompanied by an overview on the history of the trade. The book, available from 19 October, is an absolute gap-filler that gives a comprehensive insight to a long-lost trade. While it will most definitely serve as an amazing inspirational source for today’s designers and craftsmen, its visual richness makes it work even as a coffee-table book.
