Steve Pittelkow has been marbling for 35 years. His papers are known for their brilliant color and precise technique. He teaches marbling and book binding at book art centers, colleges and universities in the U.S. and Europe, including the Morgan Conservatory, Penland School of Crafts, The Metropolitan Museum, the New York Center for Book Arts, the Wells College Summer Institute, and many others. Pittelkow’s interest in marbled paper stems from a longtime desire to personalize his own bookbinding with distinctive papers. Over the years, he has experimented with a wide variety of paints and papers in a quest for materials that allow students a rich and satisfying marbling experience. Steve’s papers appear in museum collections and are used by binders and book artists nationally and internationally.
