commonplace Book - Cockerell Marbling
This book has hand marbled papers from the legendary Douglas Cockerell and Son. There is a lovely video held by the East Anglian Film Archive which you can watch here - it lasts about 15 minutes, and shows exactly how these papers were made. Although frames were used to give a regularity to the patterns, the enormous skill in creating these high precision patterns should not be underestimated, and in my view they are a complete marvel to behold. These papers have not been made for perhaps 30 years, and they are now few and far between.
