First edition, limited to only 140 numbered copies printed by hand in Garamond by Henry Morris. Karli Frigge (born in 1943) is an internationally recognized leader in marbling.

She excels in multiple marblings of utmost delicacy and transparency. Includes excerpts from Frigge's correspondences and her own books. Tipped in plates with photographs of Frigge at work and examples of her marbled art works. This volume includes 18 large exquisite marbled specimens displaying an astonishing variety in style, technique and visual effect. Uncut pages. One insignificant spot on the front and rear panel of the slipcase, else fine. Prospectus loosely inserted.
