books // florence broadhurst

Like lots of others, I'm a huge fan of Florence Broadhurst's wallpaper designs. This is a stunning coffee table book about her life, filled with plenty of photographs of her designs and how the prints have been used to make things other thank wallpaper. She had a fascinating life... she was born in Queensland, Australia (my homestate!) and became a singer who toured the world, before settling back down in Sydney and becoming a wallpaper designer at age 60. She was brutally murdered in her apartment when she was 78 and her murder has never been solved...
