This remar­kab­le book show­ca­ses several hund­red of the most exqui­si­te examp­les of deco­ra­ted paper and pro­vi­des a fasci­na­ting intro­duc­tion to its histo­ry, tra­di­ti­ons and tech­ni­ques. Rich in orna­men­ta­ti­on, deco­ra­ted papers have been in use for cen­tu­ries — as wrap­pers and end­pa­pers for books, as the backing for play­ing cards, and even as linings for ches­ts and cases. Yet despi­te the many con­texts in which they can be found, they often go unnoti­ced. Drawing on the Olga Hirsch collec­tion at the Bri­tish Libra­ry, one of the lar­gest and most diver­se collec­tions of deco­ra­ted papers in the world, this beau­ti­ful­ly pro­du­ced antho­lo­gy will both delight and inspi­re desi­gners, biblio­phi­les and anyo­ne with a love of pat­tern and deco­ra­ti­on.

P.J.M. Marks is cura­tor of book­bin­dings at the Bri­tish Libra­ry, whe­re her work inclu­des expan­ding the library’s online image data­ba­se of book­bin­dings, begun in 1996. Her pre­vious books inclu­de The Bri­tish Libra­ry Gui­de to Book­bin­ding (1998), Trea­su­res in Focus: Deco­ra­ted Papers (2007) and Beau­ti­ful Book­bin­dings (2011). Her most recent publi­ca­ti­on is a chap­ter on selec­ted Euro­pean deco­ra­ted book­bin­dings in The Arca­di­an Libra­ry: Bin­dings and Pro­ven­an­ce (2014).
