Lovers of the art of bookmaking will enjoy this photo essay by Allison Meier. The focus is on “one of the more overlooked aspects of book design, the creation of endpapers.” Ms. Meier’s post highlights “a lovely Flickr album of antique book paper patterns dating from 1890 to 1930″ assembled by Norway’s Bergen Public Library. They offer wonderful examples of the craft of “marbling” before artisans were replaced by machines.
