The Art Book of Hand Marbled Papers

India & New York: James H. Harris, [2001].

First edition, one of a stated total edition of 750 unique copies (but probably much less than that). 94 pp. of oil-marbled paint on heavy black paper. Explanatory text on two labels affixed to pastedowns. 15 ¼" x 15 ¾", marbled boards. Very Good with wear spots, rubbing, a little chipping along gutters, and scratching to boards. Lacking slipcase.

An oversize collection of hand marbled art, each page unique and original, with wild, stunning designs. Rather than the rigid, repetitive designs the artist regards as typical Western hand marbling, he opted for "flowing, rhythmic, serendipitous, and self expressive" designs similar to the Japanese art of suminagashi. According to him each book took two months to produce, which is not surprising, as this book is truly one-of-a-kind and a feast for the eyes. Item #140938636

Price: $1,000.00
