Known at the time as the "genius of pattern", Voysey's wallpaper designs for Essex and Co. were key interior design elements from the Arts and Crafts movement- from the late Nineteenth century to the 1930's. Author, Karen Livingstone here presents some of the most interesting and attractive designs from the Victoria and Albert museum collection of his works, with full historical back ground and context.
These beautiful and historically important colour designs rejected the dyeing techniques of the Victorian styles in favour of natural dyes and animal and plant themes. Selected here are textile and wallpaper designs, silk cloth and stained glass panels, all featuring Voysey's love of bird and animal themes and repeats.
