Marmor Paperie

stationery and print


Designer-maker Lucy McGrath uses methods that have barely changed for centuries. A form of print-making where each sheet is completely unique, paper marbling had its heyday in the nineteenth century where it was commonly used for book endpapers.

Lucy aims to breathe a new life into marbling, experimenting with modern colours and techniques to inspire a digital age.

“I love the element of randomness in marbling - you can mix the colours, but once you've dropped them onto the size, you have to relinquish control and simply guide the patterns as they appear.”
