The Victorian period witnessed massive increases in wallpaper production. A luxury item becomes available to all but the very poorest. Styles proliferated from hand-printed French floral, geometric designs of the Gothic Revival to William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement.

This lecture explores the impact of new technology and designs; innovations such as Lincrusta Walton and Anaglypta and the many ways wallpaper was used in homes.
