this is not your grandma’s marbled papers

When I make books I want hand crafted decorative paper on or in it. I have known about this woman’s marbled paper for a little time, as I want to do a series of books for retail I wanted something that would be “new” to the UK market. So I have this paper for a cover.

I should add that this is the second attempt to photograph it because the photographs are lying. It does not capture the etherial dream like quality this paper has.

It appears to me that most if not all of the papers available are representations of 18th and 19th century stuff and thats great I absolutely love the old “stone” patterns but I think the market could take a bit of experimentation.
