Robert M. Kelly of Lee, MA recently presented an academic paper at a preservation conference in Lancanster, PA.
The International Preservation Trades Network held their 15th annual event in Lancaster Aug. 2 through 6:
"Historic Paperhanging Technique: A Bibliographic Essay" brings together European scholarship as well as American bills, diaries and trade publications to explain how wallpaper was hung in the U. S. over a 225 year span. Paperhanging has been little studied. This paper introduces the decorative arts, academic and preservation community to the variation that has existed in paperhanging techniques. It will be especially valuable for those using reproduction wallpaper in the historic home.
The paper is now available as a free download from:
Kelly has provided consulting and installation services for wallpaper in the historic home for over 25 years. He's worked at over 30 historic homes such as Villa Louis in Wisconsin, Adena in Chillicothe, Ohio, and the White House. Recent work includes the Towne House at Old Sturbridge Village, MA.
