- Apr 6, 2004Yes....cute stories abound......I wonder if the one about how Spanish
Marbling came to be has any truth in it.......! I like that one being of
Spanish descent, and liking a little drink here and there...LOL!

Those three pages in the March 1869 issue of MANUFACTURER AND BUILDER has
some information about the methods and materials used at that time but
information given about the "first marbled paper" is unfortunately wrong
and has NO value.
Cute stories may make people feel good but eventually fall short of making
history. There are a lot of reliable resources for accurate information
about early 16th century ebru works.
