Two Centuries Of Scenic Wallpaper Are Explored In This ASPIRE Must-Read

Zuber: Two Centuries of Panoramic Wallpaper by Brian D. Coleman | Gibbs Smith

Zuber has for 200 years been the premier manufacturer of scenic wallpaper. Long admired for its panoramas of historic North America, Italy, Japan, China and more, the company’s reputation for superior quality has spread far and wide. Today, these stunningly exquisite papers are printed using the original antique woodblocks, the same paint formulas, and the time-honored processes that were used in the 1800s. And the result is magical.

In this book, we see gorgeous hand-printed Zuber wallpapers in home settings—grand foyers, elegant dining rooms, sumptuous salons, and private retreats. More than 300 beautiful photographs, plus informed commentary from author Brian Coleman, reveal the luxury of Zuber in locations as varied as the United States, France, and Scotland, in settings ranging from townhomes and metropolitan apartments to a governor’s mansion, an eighteenth-century colonial home, a private chateau, a castle, and a very modern apartment.

Become immersed in Zuber’s magical scenes of flora and fauna from exotic locales, as well as episodes from the histories of countries. Gorgeous displays of friezes, borders, ceiling roses, and architectural trompe l’oeil showcase Zuber painted wallpapers in enhancing home settings. The art and highly specialized craft of Zuber will take your breath away.
