      I've recently learned of a week long (May 22 onward) workshop in "Book History" material and techniques that focuses (I'm told) on pre-1800. I insert below a brief cut and paste from the A&M website for your information. Even so, I'm told they've not yet included marbling in the workshop. Has anyone been to this. What's your experience?

      Cushing Library Offers Scholarships for Book History Workshop


      The Cushing Memorial Library and Archives is offering a small number of scholarships for the 2005 Book History Workshop on May 22-27. Texas A&M graduate students are eligible for these scholarships which cover the $600 registration fee. The five-day workshop provides an intensive, hands-on introduction to the history of books and printing with an emphasis on hand press era printing and its allied technologies--typecasting, papermaking, bookbinding, illustration, and ink-making.



      To apply, graduate students should visit http://library.tamu.edu/bookhistory and complete the online application form. Applicants should indicate that they are applying for a graduate student scholarship and clearly identify the connection between the workshop and their professional, academic, or related interests. The deadline for application is Monday, April 11 at 5:00 p.m. For questions, contact Chris Morrow at (979) 845-1951 or at c-morrow@... These scholarships are made possible through support from the Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research and the Friends of the Sterling C. Evans Library.

      Greetings fellow marblers and list members,

      This is message is posted on behalf of Ingrid Weimann. For the time
      being, the prospectus has been placed in the Files section of this

      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.

          Neither Texas A & M nor UVA's Rare Book school have offered courses that cover marbling
          or the history of it. UVA has started to offer sources in Japanese papermaking,
          printmaking, and this year for teh first time, a course on Indian manuscripts which I wish I
          could attend. I visited friends at Texas A & M once, on my way to lecture at UT Austin and
          SMU in Dallas, but only heard of the collections and workshop after that.

          Is any kind of week-long course offered anywhere?

            Whoops! I made a mistake before hitting that send button.

            Rare Book School has offered courses in papermaking (taught by Timothy Barrett) and
            ukiyo-e printmaking for some time.

            here's the web site:

            http://www.virginia.edu/oldbooks/

            Some of the courses on binding briefly cover the subject of decorated papers.

                And they not only have G. H. W. Bush's ( #1's) Presidential library,
                they named a street after him just to show they loved him and wanted
                him to put his damned library there.

                As for not having marbling at a "pre-1800 book arts" hoop-de-do, I'm
                not surprised.

                I lived in Texas for eleven years, eight months, three weeks, and two days.

                  And they not only have G. H. W. Bush's ( #1's) Presidential library,
                  they named a street after him just to show they loved him and wanted
                  him to put his damned library there.

                  As for not having marbling at a "pre-1800 book arts" hoop-de-do, I'm
                  not surprised.

                  I lived in Texas for eleven years, eight months, three weeks, and two days.

                      OKyou know the rivalry betwwen UT and A&M,
                      I cant help but humor on the book course with no art.
                      Lyle Lovett a former A&M grad says "Thats right your not from Texas"
                      "Texas wants you anyway".
                      Makes me want to leave, anyone in the NW need a marbler?
                      Have a great day!

                      Ooooow! You really do know how to hurt a guy!

                      Really, offense neither taken nor seriously meant. I just couldn't
                      acclimate to hot, humid east Texas - but the Hill Country and west
                      Texas? - now that's another story!

I insert below a brief cut and paste from the A&M website for your information. Even so, I'm told they've not yet included marbling in the workshop. Has anyone been to this. What's your experience?
