Bitten by Witch Fever: Wallpaper & Arsenic in the Nineteenth-century Home by Lucinda Hawksley $45.00 – In Germany, in 1814, Wilhelm Sattler created an extremely toxic arsenic and verdigris compound pigment, Schweinfurt green which became an instant favorite amongst designers and manufacturers the world over. This arsenic-laced pigment made its way into intricately patterned, brightly colored wallpapers and from there, as they became increasingly in vogue, into the Victorian home. As its use became widespread, commercial arsenic mines increased production to meet the near-insatiable demand. It was beautifuyl. And deadly. Spliced between the sections of text are stunning facsimiles of the wallpapers themselves, courtesy of the British National Archive.
