Book Cover From 2018

Josef Halfer and the Revival of the Art of Marbling Paper contains a collection of essays on marbling by Josef Halfer and translated from the German by Richard J. Wolfe, who added several tipped-in marbling examples of his own and provided the marbled cover. Wolfe died before the book was finished, and it was completed by Sidney Berger. The book was published in 2018.

Below is a photo of the front cover of (my copy of) the book which I bought from Oak Knoll:

Here is a detail from my digital recreation of Wolfe’s paper. I have chosen a segment of the pattern that matches the book.
