Pam Smith: 'Evolution of the Mysterious'

Pam Smith is a marbler's marbler.  In front of about 100 book people at the New Mexico History Museum in Santa Fe she recently took everyone there  on a trip back 800 years and returned them to the present state of  marbling or 'ebru' as the Turks call it.

In a lecture Pam called the "Evolution of the Mysterious" she spoke about the earliest Sumi to the latest Ebru and all types of Marbling in between. She was introduced by the current Curator of the Place of Governors Print Shop, Tom Leech, a position Pam held for twenty years.

Marbling Bath

What ever happened to the magazine Marbling Bath?

One of pages reminded me of a Fab Book page.

Peter Max Marbling

American 'Pop' artist of the 60s Peter Max probably didn't do the marbleized  back ground. Maybe he bought the sheet from someone or maybe he used a piece of mass produced print wrapping paper ... either way I bet he did not pay royalties to the marbler who first combed the color pattern you see printed.
