Bernhard Schreiner
Three times A LITERARY HISTORY OF WALLPAPER Wallpaper
Berlin, Germany: Little and Large Editions, 2012 
80 x 67.4 x 3.7 cm (box) – 77.3 x 63.5 cm (paper) 
Boxed set of wallpaper
Edition of 13 (+6 APs) signed and numbered copies 

In 1960 E.A. Entwisle, who has written a number of volumes on the history of wallpaper, published A Literary History of Wallpaper, a 211-page exhaustive bibliography of books on the subject, or indeed which mention wallpaper, from 1509 (the earliest known wallpaper) to 1960, the year of publication.  

Earlier this year the Viennese artist Bernhard Schreine, best known for large audio installations, had the pages of the book turned into wallpaper. The edition consists of 20 silkscreen prints on Hahnemuehle Pro Arte Ingres paper, housed in a cardboard box with a silkscreened cover.
