My friend KDM sent me a marvelous link several days ago to a database of marbled and paste papers at the University of Washington Libraries. I flipped out when I saw it! Such a fabulous resource ~ full of great information and really clear images. What is better than opening an old, time-worn book and finding outrageous marbled endpapers? Well, here you can feast your eyes to your heart's content.
