Papercraft and abstraction are a winning combination in any design environment. Like UK-based design blog Present & Correct, we have a slight “obsession with stationery,” so we couldn’t help but swoon when they tweeted about marbleized paper earlier this week.

We have a feeling we’re not alone in this admiration for all things marbleized, so we picked out some stunning examples of the practice from our collection. Check out these images that shake up a mixture of moods, from nostalgia to creative fervor.
