Marbled Paper at the British Library

 
Well, I made an informal New Year's resolution this year to get back to daily blogging again... it was also going so well until this year's first bad cold kicked in and, Byronesque, I have been lounging on my couch instead of in front of the screen for these last few days...
 
But hopefully getting back on track now. So, thanks to John Coulthart for the heads-up, the British Library is putting a million copyright-free images online from books and other sources. The creation up of Flickr "Sets" is going to take a while but people are making a start and I was delighted to see that there is already a set of images of patterned paper... it's not large yet and consists mainly of marbled papers, but definitely one to watch for the future.

The third one looks very Hogarth Press. There are some excellent marbled papers in Dominic Winter's next auction Lots 519-27.
