Limited edition of 110 signed and numbered copies. Fine condition. Original samples of 90 decorated papers on twenty-six accordion-fold pages; they cover the 150 year history of this fine paper factory in Aschaffenburg, Germany. Karli Frigge provides a history of the factory which began in 1811 and closed in 1968. During this time it was Europe's largest factory for decorated, marbled, and embossed papers. Frigge also describes their techniques and includes a brief bibliography. The samples show marbled papers, paste paper, roller-printed end-papers, heavily embossed and roller-embossed papers, and leather and wood imitation papers. An incredible work on the history of marbled paper.
