Marbled Paper: Its History, Techniques and Patterns.
A comprehensive publication resulting from over twenty-five years
of research into this relatively obscure craft, this book traces the
practice of the marbling art in the regions of the western world.
Historical and societal aspects of marbling are addressed along with
stylistic and technical comment and information. Part One of the book
is comprised of eleven chapters of the historical spread of marbling
from the Far East through Germany, France and Britain. The four
chapters of Part Two focus on technical aspects of the craft and Part
Three illustrates and comments on over one hundred well-known patterns.
This book is recommended for the serious student, teacher or practioner
of the marbling craft.
