The Art of Marbled Paper.

"My primary aim in writing this book was to describe the equipment necessary for setting up a workshop and the materials required for production, and to introduce and explain various marbling techniques." The author, world-renowned bookbinder Einen Miura, achieves his objective, and more! He also traces the history of marbled paper from the Far East to Middle East to Europe, and he provides us with over 100 color photographs of papers and books that may truly be described as lavish. Accompanying sixty of the photographs are diagrams showing how historical and original patterns are attained. This book is directed to interested students of marbled paper and for those with an appreciation for the beauty of this fine art.
