Ancient Pattern for a Flock Paper
Flock papers are admirable substitutes for the ancient hangings,
but then they must consist of a pattern without shadow, with the forms relieved
by the introduction of harmonious colours. Illuminated manuscripts of the
thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth centuries would furnish an immense number
of exquisite designs for this purpose (p.26).
