      I recently purchased from Ingrid Weimann a relatively new book by the
      Turkish artist Hikmet Barutçugil entitled "Renkelerin Sonsuzlugu- Infinity
      of Colours" It is written in both English and Turkish, and is lavishly
      illustrated with mostly Hikmet's work. It has a lot of interesting
      technical information about using Gum Tragacanth, and grinding pigments,
      recently discussed on the list. It is probably the best technical
      description that I have seen of this method in English to date. Some
      translations are a little rough, and there are a few mispellings, but there
      are some very nice diagrams, and it is generally easy to understand. It is
      produced in Turkey by Yasar Egitim ve Kültür Vakfi (Yasar Education and
      Culture Foundation), 1999

      Edition with tip-ins and printed marbled flower endpaper $90.00 + $10

      Deluxe edition with orig.marbled endpapers $125.00 + $10 shipping.

      and 2 deluxe(one with a creased endpaper,the other a small smear on a page)
      $100.00 + $10 shipping.

      All copies are signed by Hikmet.

      She said she has about 10 or so left.

      She has another book as well that just features Hikmet's work.

      As well as one other book...

      Ingrid also mentioned that she still has a number of copies of the book that
      she produced about her late husband, "Chris Weimann- a Tribute". Chris was
      one of the most extraordinary marblers of this century. He experimented
      with many different marbling methods, coming up with using a mixture of
      carragheenan and methyl cellulose with acrylic paints. He is also rightly
      credited with discovering, and proving the methods used in what are
      collectively known as the Deccani Stencil-Resist marbled paintings. The
      research was carried out on select paintings from the collection of the late
      Sir Edwin Binney III, at the LA County Museum where Chris was a guest
      researcher. The book includes articles by Ingrid, Woodman Taylor, Norma
      Rubovits, and has a reprint of Chris' article from Fine Print magazine
      detailing the methods he used to reproduce some of the paintings.
