Table of Contents
From the old Egyptian papyrus roll, we have come thru various stages of the scroll, the Japanese book and the book with a single signature, to the bound volume of today with rounded backs and stiff covers. Some of the old books which developed during this evolution had mottled covers which gave them color and distinction. This old type is now being "revived" and the same effect can be produced in little booklets which can easily be made at home.
