Is there a list showing international suppliers of conservation/bookbinding material ?
The reason I ask is that a firm that we have dealt with for many
years, namely F. J. Ratchford Limited, Kennedy Way, Green Lane,
Stockport, England, were telling me that they are considering
increasing their export market into the US and other countries and I
wondered if there was a directory on which they could publish this
I would not normally try to help in this way but over the years we
have had excellent service from them and we find their book-cloths
and buckrams ideally suited to our binding processes.
Perhaps a "recommended supplier" list would be useful if it was on
CooL or another point of access on the Web? I always find it a
problem tracing new sources of specialist one off items in
In the meantime if anyone is interested in samples from Ratchfords
telephone (44) 61 4808484 or Fax (44) 61 4803679.
I hope this doesn't sound too much like an advert but I just wanted
to introduce the idea of an "electronic recommended suppliers" list.
