About the Author :

Graham Rust is internationally renowned for his murals and ceiling paintings, which can be found in houses in Britain, Europe, and America.

His drawings and paintings have been widely exhibited and special collections have been used as book illustrations, notably for editions of The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, and Little Lord Fauntleroy, all by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Examples of his painting also appear in Some Flowers by Vita Sackville-West, The Fine Art of Dining (Bulfinch, 1995), and Decorative Designs (Bulfinch, 1996).

From Publishers Weekly :

Beautifully designed and illustrated, and accompanied by a concise text, this book offers a curiously limited but enticing glimpse of the possibilities of interior wall painting. Rust, an English muralist, has compiled reproductions of over 100 of his murals designed for a variety of spaces, complete with handsome watercolor sketches illustrating the development of each design. His work, while masterfully executed, is largely derivative, relying on the art of antiquity and a trompe l'oeil painting technique. Most of the murals depicted are grand and fantastical and aspire to an old-world luxuriance better suited to hotel and restaurant walls than the average home, but contain details easily adapted to the needs of humbler spaces. Only a small portion of the volume is devoted to actual painting technique and practice. This is clearly not a do-it-yourself book; only an experienced painter could realize a mural based on information gleaned from the text. As a designer's sourcebook, it is limited by the homogeneity of Rust's own style, but offers valuable information on design considerations and conveys a refreshingly magical eccentricity.
