Care of the Victoria and Albert Museum, this specialist society promotes all aspects of wallpaper history, preservation and production.

The most enticing element of the society is the organised visits to country houses. Many of these grand abodes boast beautifully preserved elaborate wall coverings. However there is also a wealth of lectures on offer and a handbook.
