I do antique book restoration and make my own marbled endpapers and board papers for the books that I rebind. I have seen advertised in Archival catalogs hand marbled paper that they claim is alum free and acid free. Does anyone know how they achieve this?

Just wanted to add that the best book I have read on Illumination (applying gold to lettering and miniature pictures on paper) is this one: Calligraphy & illumination : a history and practical guide / Patricia Lovett. Publisher New York : Harry N. Abrams, 2000. ISBN 0810941198

Iris encouraged me to post prices so here it is: Half Pint = $15 Pint = $30 Quart = $40 Plus shipping and I have to charge tax in NY and PA. It lasts forever, so buy a lifetime supply! Carole Lonely Pine Bindery Rifton, NY
I'm doing watercolor marbling reproductions of antique endpapers for bookbinding & I need a source of a thin paper that will withstand the process, and accept the watercolor...it seems like everything is too buffered now to take the color well.
