As part of our objective to promote learning and education, Leeds Art Fund has supported a number of specialist publications which publish new research on various aspects of the collections.   We ensure that copies of our publications are deposited in Leeds Central Library, Calverley Street, Leeds, LS1 3AB, so that if they sell out, you will still be able to consult them locally.

Wallpapers at Temple Newsam 1635 to the present by Anthony Wells-Cole and Barbara Walker (2017)

Price: £55

This magnificent and lavishly illustrated book is the fruit of nearly forty year’s research by two acknowledged experts in the field. Its core is the rich heritage of wall coverings discovered in the historic mansion, followed by examples collected from innumerable country houses throughout Britain. English papers predominate but there are many from France, America, China and Japan giving a wide picture of styles and techniques.

A large group from Ashburnham Place, Sussex and from Jeffrey & Co, the most dynamic late 19th century manufacturer, give a particularly strong picture of fashionable and advanced Victorian taste.
