The art of paper marbling… in video


Endpapers of fine books are often decorated with marbling. The patterns can be extremely eye-catching but sometimes the reader may skip the marbling in order to get to the content. You might enjoy this marbling video from a Turkish artist. This article from Fine Books magazine is also useful.

There is, of course, a book on every subject and we recommend Richard Wolfe’s Marbled Paper: Its History, Techniques, and Patterns for further reading on this little-known art form.
