Re: marbling literature
- Thanks for posting those links, Garrett!
Not sure why, but I had some trouble getting the Woolnough link that you
posted to work properly, but then I found this direct link
<http://klibredb.lib.kanagawa-u.ac.jp/dspace/handle/10487/9168> to all
of the parts of the book. Too bad they are very large files despite
being in black and white...
I remember that Iris said once that Nicholson had plagiarized Woolnough
in his Manual of the Art of Bookbinding, and original copies had very
similar papers, so that's something else to look for.
Part 2 of John Pleger'sBookbinding and its Auxiliary Branches
has a section on marbling. Somewhere in one of the volumes, he has a
fold-out plate depicting various marbled edges that is fun.
Also, a gentle reminder to everyone that many historical marbling texts
counts/> have already been uploaded into the Files section
<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Marbling/files/> of the marbling group
website. All you have to do is log in to the site directly, click on the
links, and then you can download away. Also, please feel free to upload
additional materials, should you find any.
