      Announcing a new digital prospectus for Christopher Weimann: A Tribute.

      A newly enlarged and enhanced digital prospectus for the limited
      edition in honor of the late paper marbler Christopher Weimann: A
      Tribute is now available. It is in an Adobe PDF format totaling nearly
      2MB and can be obtained by visiting the �files� section of the Yahoo
      marbling group web site: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Marbling/files/,
      or by writing to Ms. Ingrid Weimann directly at floatingcolors@....

      This new prospectus features book reviews by book historian Nicholas
      Barker and paper marbler Tom Leech, along with more images of marbled
      papers and stencil-marbled paintings created by Weimann. The edition
      includes a series of essays by scholars and fellow marblers, and his
      wife Ingrid. A full reprint of an article in Fine Print, which has
      since become a rare and expensive publication, has also been reproduced
      in entirety. Weimann was very well known for his research and
      reproduction of a distinct genre paintings in India, often associated
      with Deccan region of southern India during the early to mid-17th
      century.

      Weimann faced enormous challenges, among them a preconceived notion
      among many scholars that these paintings were cut and pasted together
      in a method of collage or decoupage. Weimann convincingly proved that
      these works were created through the application of cut paper stencils,
      gum resists or a combination of both. These were applied to the same
      sheet of paper and then marbled. After having recreated several of
      these he presented them to Dr.Edwin Binney 3rd who then gave
      Christopher permission, having convinced the museum staff of the
      importance of this, to have three of these paintings scientifically
      examined. This was done at the Conservation Dept. at the Los Angeles
      County Museum of Art. He was able to prove through microscopic analysis
      that his theory of how they were done was correct. More analysis work
      and research was in his future plans but his untimely death cut this
      sadly short.
