First edition limited to 110 numbered copies. Translated by Erik Zuurbier and edited by Sidney Berger. Typography by Willie Bosch. The book is bound by Karli Frigge herself, with assistance from Steintje de Valk, Hanne Mahler, and Elly Bos. This book features the extraordinary accumulation of 59 marbled specimens executed by the marbling master Karli Frigge. The samples are divided into six chapters: classical marbling, granulating paint marbling, 'double print' marbling, a chapter titled 'dear mistakes' which focuses on common mistakes that are made during the hand-marbling process, Dutch suminagashi marbling, and finally Frigge's take on Turkish Ebru 'Tiger-Eye' marbling. The book has twelve pages of text, with captions, and three explanatory drawings. The text explains the method and many tips for the marble, such as the recipe for the Potah Paste that makes making Tiger-Eyes Easyer..
