Synopsis: The approach and style of "Paint Magic" and "Fabric Magic" are followed in this guide to the uses of paper in interior decoration. Jane Gordon Clark aims to provide a wide range of elegant and original effects that can be achieved: on walls and ceilings, to create spatial illusion, to transform the scale and proportion of a room and to camouflage; borders that add architectural detailing and finishing touches; paper "paintings" and panels; decoupage; print rooms and silhouettes. Also covered, with practical guidance, are projects to transform furniture and accessories from windowshades and lampshades to small objects.

From the Inside Flap: Original, imaginative and practical, Paper Magic will inspire you to tackle many new ways of decorating, with paper. Photographs and step-by-step drawings explain all the different techniques covered.
