The Economy Of Delight - Projected Collage


The economy of delight draws inspiration from elaborate eighteenth century stucco plaster work commonly found in larger houses of the period. In eighteenth century England an artisan undertaking this kind of work could expect to earn as little as £15-£20 a year, By contrast the contrast yearly income of the aristocracy could be as much as £30,000. This group made up three percent of the population, but enjoyed fifteen percent of the national income. (Old Bailey records).
