What about the woman in 19th century Britain who wallpapered her room with Penny Blacks?
When I was stationed at a remote radar station in Alaska, in 1977, some of us went out hiking, one day, and came across a cabin that had been wallpapered with old LIFE magazine covers. Of course it took only a small fraction of the number of Penny Blacks to cover a given area.
