A miniature book chronicling the author’s experiments with this Japanese form of paper marbling, in preparation for creating samples to be included in Decorating Paper. In the course of her experiments, she discovered that there were so many options with papers and inks, that it would be prudent to make the trial samples as small as possible. Over 300 small sheets (2.5 x 3-inches) of gampi, mulberry, kozo, hosho, yatsuo, Guarro, Rives, were marbled with Boku-Undo marbling dyes and Royal, sumi, Chunghwa and Kohinoor inks. Extras were used to create this small book.
The brief text was printed on J. Whatman handmade papers (a mixture of laid and wove). It is followed by a series of samples on different kinds of gampi, alternating between pages of the Whatman paper from which a letter has been cut out, the whole spelling out S U M I N A G A S H I .
The edition is 12 copies signed by the author, bound in full leather by Claudia Cohen, in a box.
