The Numismatic Bibliomania Society table at this summer's American Numismatic Association World's Fair of Money® will feature a special live bookbinding demonstration. Len Augsburger submitted this update.
NBS Bookbinding Demo at ANA Convention
Our bookbinding term of the week is
marbled paper, which was sometimes used in older books for the front and rear pastedowns. Wikipedia explains the manufacture:
A shallow tray is filled with water, and various kinds of ink or paint colors are carefully applied to the surface with an ink brush. Various additives or surfactant chemicals are used to help float the colors. Once the desired pattern is achieved, a sheet of paper is pressed into the solution, and the image transfers (in reverse) to the sheet. For our demo at the ANA, we will have several types of marbled paper to choose from, such as this
French marble peacock example.
