Library Journal Review

Beautifully marbled endpapers are a familiar sight in old books, but few readers have any idea of how they are made. The technique of printing on paper using inks or paints floating on water was originally kept secret, but recent books have revealed the process. Continuing the material in her previous book, Marbling: A Complete Guide to Creating Beautiful Patterned Papers and Fabrics, this guide includes avant-garde images as well as the classic designs using Japanese suminagashi inks, oil-color marbling, and watercolor marbling. Included are troubleshooting pointers and excellent photographs of pieces by the author and other artists. Highly recommended for all crafts collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
