Publisher Comments:

Die Papierherstellung wurde in China vor vermutlich 2.000 Jahren erfunden. Auch die ersten Papier-Dekorationstechniken wurden in China sowie in Japan entwickelt. Bereits im 12. Jahrhundert n. Chr. war die Marmoriertechnik in beiden Ländern bekannt. Während des 16. Jahrhunderts war sie in Persien und in der Türkei beliebt, von wo aus die Kenntnisse nach Westeuropa gelangten. Vom 17. bis 19. Jahrhundert florierte in Deutschland, Frankreich, Italien, Holland und England die Herstellung von Marmorpapier. Geläufige Stilarten sind der Kammmarmor, der Schneckenmarmor und der Steinmarmor; Beispiele für diese und weitere Stile sind in MARBLED PAPER DESIGNS zu finden.

Synopsis:

Decorated Paper Paper-making was invented in China, probably some 2,000 years ago. Early paper decoration techniques were also developed in both China and Japan. The marbling technique was known In these two countries as early as the 12th century AD. During the 16th century, it was popular in Persia and Turkey, and from there, knowledge of marbling spread to western Europe. In the 17th-19th centuries, there was substantial marbled paper production in Germany, France, Italy, Holland and England. For paper marbling, a large receptacle is filled with a gelatinous substance, and drops of watercolour dye are floated on top. The colour is then spread with a brush, comb or other tool to produce the desired effect. A sheet of paper is then placed on the floating dye, leaving a mirror image of the design on the paper. Common styles include comb marbling, 'French curl' marbling and stone marbling; examples of these and other styles can all be found in Marbled Paper Design. A variation on marbled paper is paste paper. In this technique, a layer of starch is applied to blank paper, and paint is added on top of it. The design is produced by manipulating the paint with a brush or scraper, or with the help of stamps or rollers. Japanese Papers includes an extensive and rare selection of such designs. This book also contains stunning examples of other Japanese paper decoration techniques, such as block printing and the application of design during the actual paper-making process.
