The Jim Flora Collection
The Jim Flora Collection, the debut product venture between the Estate of Jim Flora and The Double E Company, is an exuberant line of wallpaper produced by the nation’s premier specialty wallcoverings company, Astek, Inc., featuring patterns derived from and inspired by the mischievous, impish, and sometimes plain wacky art of James "Jim" Flora. Flora is best known for his wild jazz and classical album covers for Columbia and RCA Victor Records during the 1940s and 1950s, as well as several popular children's books, such as The Day The Cow Sneezed (1957). Flora wreaked havoc with the laws of physics, conjuring flying musicians, levitating instruments, and wobbly dimensional perspectives, all with a sense of uncommon glee. We've built on Jim's groundbreaking artworks, mixing his irresistible mid-20th Century feel with 21st Century modern styling.
