gangsta bookbinders



The highbinder reference reminds me of a passage from Luc Sante's _Low
Life_, where he mentions a renagade gang of bookbinder apprentices who made
life unpleasant for the residents of lower Manhattan during the mid 19th C.
 They were known as the "Old Slippers", named for the street they operated
around.

Have too many years of sniffing PVA caused modern bookbinders to hide
behind the workbench? :)
