Marbling at the Heyeck Press, by Robin Heyeck. Royal 8vo, 65pp, colophon, The Heyeck Press, Woodside, California, 1986.

Number 97 of 150 copies with 28 tipped-in samples of Robin Heyeck's marbled papers and signed by the author/marbler. Grey quarter leather binding with gilt spine lettering, white and grey marbled paper over boards. Slipcase. A fine copy.
One of my favourites, I think, of books on marbled paper. One of the author's specialities is a flame-like marbling which sometims decorates title-pages in her books. The book also contains a bibliography of all Heyeck books and private productions which employed marbling. This includes samples of the marbling together with bibliographic details of the work, the reason it was undertaken, and the conditions under which it was made. It is full of secrets.
