Re: Leather Marbling

Dear Gillian
Robin replies as follows;
The book on Calf Marbing is by Ronald Peck Illust. by Jennifer Sawyer.
The description of calf Marbling in the book is based on a lecture and
demonstration given by Mr. Ralph Themburg on the 4th of December, 1974 for
bookbinding and paper conservation students at Camberwell School of Arts
and Crafts.
Mr. Themburg of W.T. Morwell and Sons, Ltd. Covent Garden, London was
probably the last commercial practitioner of this craft of decorating the
covers of calf bound books.
