Best Suminagashi Book Ever


Suminagashi: The Japanese Art of Marbling by Anne Chambers

Although hard to find, this is our favorite book about Suminagashi and the perfect gift for anyone who appreciates this art form. Written as an introduction to the Japanese craft of paper marbling, the book details both traditional and modern methods and includes step-by-step instructions on imitating traditional designs and adapting them to Western tastes. It is a wonderful addition to any library.

  • I agree, this is a lovely book. It is the only decent book that I have found, written in English. Also very nice to find a website dedicated to Suminagashi. I see that you have borrowed a picture of my suminagashi (from my flickr site) for your background image – it looks great ­čśÇ
