Rosamond B. Loring, author of Decorated Book Papers, was also a skilled maker of marbled and paste papers. Having trained as a bookbinder, Loring experimented with making decorated papers for her own use and received early instruction in the art of marbling from Charles V. Saflund. A distinguished teacher of marbling and paste paper techniques in her own right, she also produced papers for edition bindings by publishers such as Houghton Mifflin, the Limited Editions Club, and the Merrymount Press.

Loring’s manuscript recipe book for creating marbled and paste papers has been preserved in the Rosamond B. Loring Collection of Decorated Papers in the Department of Printing and Graphic Arts at Houghton Library, Harvard University. This facsimile edition is accompanied by an essay by Sidney E. Berger commenting on the recipes and analyzing Loring’s materials and techniques.
