The "Paisley Prince Songbook", a Prince-themed pattern created by UK designer Patrick Moriarty, was featured in the "Paisley: A Princely Pattern" exhibition at the Museum for Islamic Art in Jerusalem. Named after 18 Prince songs, the design was displayed on a museum exterior wall and used as room wallpaper. Icons such as Madonna, Jimi Hendrix, and the Beatles, who wore paisley patterns, were also showcased. Read Patrick's blog post about the exhibition. There was a review of the “Paisley: A Princely Pattern” exhibition in the Times of Israel (dated 22 July 2022) that mentions the Paisley Prince Songbook wallpaper designed by Patrick Moriarty.
