End of Story

Paper marbeling is an ages-old method of surface design used to produce patterns similar to stone or shell.  The patterns appear as a result of color floated in either water or a glue-like substance known as size and then transferred to paper or fabric.  It has often been used for endpapers or covers for books.  And just look at these varied and beautiful marbled and shell papers here which I came across yesterday.  In the stillness of this shop these beautiful tomes made me a bit chagrined that I was judging them by their covers alone.
