TURCKISCH PAPIR. A SHORT HISTORY OF MARBLING IN THE ORIENT AND IN GERMANY
Jäckle-Sönmez, Tubingen 1995 - miniature (7.5 x 5.5 cm). Leather strip on spine, marbled paper boards. (viii),75+(1) pages. Limited to an edition of 210, of which this is one of the 140 bound in marbled paper boards. Signed by the marbler on the colophon. Hand-bound with 10 marbled specimens following the text which is in English and German. The appreciation of Turkish marbled papers in Europe dates back to the late 1500s when Istanbul became a favored destination. It was only earlier in the same century that ebru, as the technique is know, began to be practiced throughout Turkey as an art-form. The paper was originally used mainly by calligraphers, but quickly became popular for bookbinding. Sönmez is one of the foremost practitioners of the art in the late 20th & early 21st centuries. Leather strip on spine, marbled paper boards [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
