Guest Post: Papering a wall with Austen By JD Smith — 23 Comments

  1. That’s amazing! I’ve seen P&P in one massive framed poster before now, but never all over a wall. what a fab idea and it looks brilliant!

    Loved the birthday book, too, Jane, turned into your name. What a great present to receive!

    I love Monica’s latest cover too – just beautiful work.

    Enjoying reading this. Thank you, Monica, for sharing!

  2. What a fantastic idea. Not sure anyone else in my family would appreciate a P&P wall though. Would I ever get anything done around the house if I had one? I’d also be far too scared to take a pair of scissors to the wallpaper whilst hanging it in case I’d made a terrible mistake in the measuring!

    I also love Jane’s cover for Darcy’s Pledge. I was lucky enough to win a copy in a giveaway and have just finished reading it this morning (I’m not working today), after a couple of rather too late nights reading as well. Thanks you, Monica, firstly for your generosity with the giveaway, and secondly for such a wonderful read. Can’t wait for volume 2!

  3. Jamet, I love the book on wallpaper. What a great idea! But, I wouldn’t trust myself to trim it properly & would either trim too much or too little. No one else is as into books as. I am & would firmly believe I had lost my mind. Love the cover you designed for Darcy’s Pledge.

    Monica, I loved the book. I did give in and read it. Now I am anxiously waiting for the release of the second volume.

      • Just couldn’t wait for volume 2 since when we were posting to how you wanted our opinion of the beginning of the book you twisted my arm (convinced me) to read it & not wait. 🙂

  4. Thanks guys. Yes, I was a little nerve-wracking trimmed the edges but it all went up okay in the end.

  5. Where can I buy a book with my name? I LOVE that. The design for Darcy’s Pledge is great – we’ve all commented on that and everyone had a different word for it but all fantastic. I don’t know that anyone in my family would appreciate the wallpaper but I would love to have it…also where I could sit and read it while having a cup of coffee (my addiction). Obviously you have many talents…and 3 boys? do they leave fingerprints. I now have 2 grandchildren and know fingerprints are coming! I remember repainting the staircase wall many times due to fingerprints. Or did you treat the wall with some type of washable coating?

  6. What a fantastic idea! My only problem is, I am not a fan of wallpaper! However, if I could fit it in one piece and then put moulding around it…that would work for me! The book is gorgeous too. I too would love to know where the book is from.

    As for Monica’s art on the cover of her book, absolutely love it! It’s on my list to buy for June!!!! That is less than a week away! Can’t wait to just sit and stare at the cover and then to immerse myself in the book.

  7. I love love love your wallpaper!! I’m in the midst of re-designing my office and think that’s brilliant. I won’t wind up with anything that fabulous but wow, what an idea!!

    The book cover is gorgeous. You can feel the emotion.

  8. That’s such a great idea, I’ve never seen something like that before. I also could not imagine that a whole book could fit on a wall. I think if I couldn’t actually do wallpaper that it would also be great to break up the book into several panels that could be hung. Either way, sounds like such an awesome idea for art!

  9. Isn’t it lovely! I have seen it on a poster and I nearly bought it, but I’d need the right space for it. I would never have thought of getting my own bespoke wallpaper made, what a wonderful idea.

  10. Love the wall! Love the book cover and love the book with the name. I definitely want one of each!!!

    I do have the poster with P&P text – there is one available from the UK with the entire text, but the one I have my daughter gave me for my birthday last year and it is only half the book. I have it framed in my bedroom, of course. I would love to have the book with the name carved into it. Please try to discover what the source is. How creative.

    Your wallpaper is wonderful. With my experience hanging wallpaper I would have creases in the paper and so the sentence would start one way and then end up attached to some other part of the sheet. I am a terrible wallpaper hanger. 🙁

    The book “Mr. Darcy’s Pledge” is beautiful and I will be sure to read it.

  11. Wow, it’s incredible to be able to read P&P whenever you are in your conservatory without the need to flip the book. I don’t do wallpapers in my house but I do like the idea of papering walls with flora designs or any other beautiful themes.

    The book cover design you did for Monica is gorgeous.

  12. I would love that but my husband would hate it. And we agreed a long time ago that we both have veto privileges over home decor. But it is stunning and I think it is fabulous.
