Marbled Paper » ingalls library and museum archives + book repair & articles

ingalls library and museum archives » Marbled Paper:
The page ends from Pilkington's Dictionary of Painters "Paper marbling dates to 800 AD in Japan, but it took many more years for the technique to spread. Persian bookbinders utilized marbled end papers from the 15th century. By 1598 the practice spread to Holland, then later to Paris and England. Examples in the Ingalls Library collection are numerous, several can be found by browsing the Reference Collection, but clearly the work of some is greater than others."
