Jean Formo produced quite a lot of "stained" Tyvek (TM), and you might be
able to reach her c/o Minnesota Center for Book Arts, 24 N. Third St.,
Minneapolis, MN 55401. She has taught a class in stained Tyvek there, too,
as well as other classes. Sorry I don't have her address and I have no idea
if she's got email or is on this list.
