The Alembic Press has a small collection of the decorated papers produced by
Arthur Sanderson (the wallpaper manufacturers) in the 1950s, and we have just
published a new book - Fancy Papers - to show these off.

The book contains 34 samples of fancy papers, including some of the modern
range being produced in England by E.Becker, who purchased part of Sanderson
Packaging & Display. It also gives a brief history of decorated papers, and a
sample of the various stages in production of a particular sheet. To
compliment the papers, the book is bound as if a sample book, with its sheets
Japanese sewn into Blue Levant fancy paper covered boards, with gold kraft
endpapers. A few special copies are available, housed in a box and with some
full-page paper samples, including some papers not in the main book.

The term Fancy Paper is applied to all the decorated papers such as
leatherettes, foils, flocks, brickpaper, etc that fine presses and
bookbinders steer clear of, but which the world uses to line boxes,
suitcases, school walls, dolls houses, formica tabletops, etc.
