Paper hangings that were used as wallpaper in 18th-century Poland and a velvet couch from the early 20th century with stamp prints and calico paper sheets-these are some of the objects being shown at an exhibition entitled Printing Techniques in Paper and Fabric Decoration, on display at the Ethnographic Museum in Wroc³aw.

The exhibition showcases various paper and fabric decoration methods that employ hand printing techniques. The items on display include calico paper with prints made with wooden blocks, cylinder paper made using cylindrical molds, paper with patterns made with cork, potato and rubber stamps, and paper objects made employing melted wax in a technique called reservage. Other items at the exhibition include pattern books with decorative paper and fabrics decorated with prints.

These historic objects come from the collections of the Museum of Paper Making in Duszniki-Zdrój, the Ethnographic Museums in Cracow and Wroc³aw, and the Central Museum of the Textile Industry in £ód¼.

M.H.

Ethnographic Museum in Wroc³aw, 111/113 Gen. Romualda Traugutta St., open through Oct. 18.
