The more I read about your book sheets, the more I'm intrigued and would
like to try my hand at a binding. Can you send me a set or whatever you
want to arrange so you end up with a copy as well? My studio address is
198 Walhalla, Columbus, OH 43202-1442. Thanks. NB: I'm a
calligrapher/marbler/book artist who worked with Bob Tauber at OSU's Logan
Elm Press until its recent closing.
