This old English documentary about how master artisans hand-make marbled paper is so beautiful and so deeply satisfying, it may well give you ASMR tingles—not just from the rustling of the paper, but from the sheer perfection of color and craft. Look, there's a lot of cool stuff out there for you to spend your time on, but learning how marbled paper (that wonderful material that covers old books and rich people write notes on) gets made is something that's almost guaranteed to be different than your usual Internet fare. It involves seaweed gel, vibrant colors, and a process so simple a child could learn it, but only a master could perfect. (Jump to 3:00 if you want to get straight to the pretty parts.)
