Subject: [Marbling] The recent history of marbling
I have noticed something when I recently had look at my little collection of books on marbling . The greter portion of the books were written in a period which corresponds to the early 1980s till around 2000. As far as I know, there has been little discussion or documentation about this wonderous period of revival and discoveries. This may prove to be a bit of bother to future generations of marbling historians, due to the lack of evidence.
Hence, it would be interesting to have a little recount of that period. Perhaps how you learned of this craft, or the general atmosphere surronding it then?
