The following (utterly charming) film, Art of the Marbler, allows us to follow the production of marbled paper as executed by William Chapman, an artist employed by Douglas Cockerell and Son.

The video was produced by the Bedfordshire Record Office in 1970 and published via the Bedfordshire Archives Youtube channel in 2013.

To examine a selection of beautifully marbled papers firsthand, drop by Loyola University New Orleans Special Collections & Archives on the 3rd floor of Monroe Library Monday-Friday, 9:00-4:30.
