The samples are divided into six chapters: classical marbling, granulating paint marbling, 'double print' marbling, a chapter titled 'dear mistakes' which focuses on common mistakes that are made during the hand-marbling process, Dutch suminagashi marbling, and finally Frigge's take on Turkish Ebru 'Tiger-Eye' marbling. The book has twelve pages of text, with captions, and three explanatory drawings. The text explains the method and many tips for the marble, such as the recipe for Potah Paste. -- Publisher
