Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Unlike many how-to books that tend to put a lot of different techniques into one book, this one focuses solely on wallpapering. Clearly illustrated, the step-by-step instructions cover choosing materials and patterns, purchasing equipment and setting up, and handling special situations like applying paper to dormers and stairways and around windows, outlets, and pipes. Part of a series that includes Painting and Wiring, these books will be useful in public libraries.
