'Suns' wallpaper sample, colour print from linocut by Peggy Angus, c.1960 Peggy Angus was an artist and a designer who produced wallpapers by hand-printing block cut designs in the 1960s. The patterns were printed onto lining paper using house emulsion paint. Many of Peggy Angus’ wallpapers were specially made for each of her customers. They appealed to people who wanted an exclusive look for their homes. Angus explained that her wallpapers were unique because “no two prints, even from the same block, are alike. The subtle irregularity in the pressure of the printer’s hand can never be matched by the machine.”
