A rich and personal narrative of Marthe Armitage - an eloquent voice in the realm of pattern-making and artisanal wallpapers
This book is a journey of redescovery by Marthe of her work and ideas. It explores her creative practice and processes that have produced a collection of beautiful and distinctive hand-made wallpapers, much in demand. Original photography captures Marthe's archive gathered over sixty years of her life in Strand on the Green, her family home since 1939. Marthe's contribution to the world of pattern and print is set in context, alongside her own writing that expresses warmth and humour.
