Guys, I cannot recommend enough taking 12 minutes and 52 seconds to watch this video!
It’s a mini documentary about Cockerell Marbling and was made in 1970 by Bedfordshire County Council. I love everything about it, from the clipped voice of the narrator, to the music – even the Bedfordshire County Council logo is spot on. The video shows the methods used to create marbled paper that was primarily used for book binding by Douglas Cockerell and Son. It shows how each piece of paper is made individually and takes us through the process, which is just the most satisfying thing to watch. It really gets going at 3.23 if you’re a bit short on time. And make sure you stick around to see the technician doing a bit of experimenting later on in the video! Unfortunately the company has now closed, but their Facebook page is still active.
