A History of Patterned Papers.
Decorative Papers have been used in a variety of ways from the sixteenth scenery onwards: in book production, as End and Cover Papers, as Lining Papers for trunks and deed boxes, as decoration for cases containing musical instruments and optical instruments as back patterns for playing cards, and in the Nineteenth and Twentieth centuries at least, as Wrapping Papers.
