  • Joseph Rose: Working Drawings

    Introduced by Ashleigh Murray

    Small and perfectly formed: a facsimile of a sketchbook by the C18th plastering firm, Joseph Rose & Co. It was found with a tatty cover in a drawer at Harewood House. Joseph Rose Senior and Junior (uncle and nephew) were the pre-eminent master plasterers of their age and worked closely on the ceilings at Harewood with Robert Adam, as well as with James Wyatt, William Chambers and others. The drawings relate to multiple projects up and down the country, not only Harewood. It is rare to find books on or by the craftsmen of the period, who, along with the commissioners and the architects, make up the trinity of makers, designers and purchasers essential to all great building projects.

    This is a delightful and very limited edition of 50 copies, beautifully bound in a pale yellow cloth, hand sewn with decorative endpapers, and numbered.

    Kate Holland, a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders, has done the layout, typesetting and binding.

  • Wallpapers at Temple Newsam: 1635 to the Present

    Anthony Wells-Cole & Barabara Walker

    Stunning, large format illustrated catalogue of the wallpapers at Temple Newsam, one of the few significant collections in this country. Though many rooms were damaged or stripped of their papers, an enormous amount of conservation work has been achieved over several decades. Not least, a new company – the now famous Zoffany & Co.- was created to make meticulous reproductions of some of the wallpapers based on fragments. The wall coverings at Temple Newsam date from about 1700 to the present day, including half a century of rather unsympathetic redecoration from the 1930’s on. Most of the historic Temple Newsam wallpapers have been found since 1979 during structural repair works and during restoration of the house between 1980 and 2009.
