Introductory texts for Gift Wrapping Paper Books

  • Antonia Edwards

I wrote introductory texts for 10 volumes of the Gift Wrapping Paper series of books by The Pepin Press. Each book contains 12 sheets of wrapping paper, with each volume inspired by a different art movement or design style. The texts comprised short histories of Paisley, 1920s Fancy Design, 1950s Abstract, Kimono, Arabian Designs, Turkish Designs, Psychedelic, Renaissance, Op Art and Art Nouveau, which were translated into eight languages.
