Marble paper tills a lot about the book:

Thoughts of saving the historical evidence, during conservation and restoration process; is the main objective that all professional conservators are keen of. Moreover, before taking any conservation or restoration decision or action; conservators carefully should study hard the object history and condition.Curators work closely with conservators to identify the object's history, identity, originality, and all other codicological and curatorial pieces of information.

Therefore, marble paper considered as one of the books sights that carry a lot of historical evidence, for instance, it carries information about the object binding history, technique, and whether it is the first (original) binding or a later on binding or restoration.

The idea of carrying a handy and easy to use yet mobile application, which carries out all the information and history about marble papers, was one of my dreams in creating a knowledge sharing culture since I have many dreams regarding this sharing conservation culture.
