About the Book

Pip goes to London at age twenty and finds a job at a leading wallpaper/fabric emporium where he learns tricks of the trade. At Sanderson & Sons, he learns a great deal about wallpapers, paints, and general interior design. He teaches himself how to paper and the right way to paint. By then he starts feeling as though he could excel as a self-employed decorator. When a good customer calls him to suggest leaving Sanderson and doing just that, he makes up his mind and takes the plunge. Before long, he meets and marries a beautiful woman named Rosemary and starts a family. They end up moving into fourteen houses as the years go by. Join the author as he shares a lifetime of adventure and business lessons—and plenty of moves—in Pip’s Memoirs and Manoeuvres.
