Winterthur Digital Collections

About this collection

Wallpaper in the Winterthur Library represents a wide range of techniques, colors, and histories. Many are block printed, while others are roller printed and represent a span of paper history from coarse laid sheets to smooth machine-made wove paper. The samples are found as scraps, some documenting interiors, and as covers in account books, personal notebooks, and copybooks. They range from circa 1740 to 1865.
