I'm certain that all of you have a photo-album. In most of these albums a
specific paper is used for interleaving. I don't know the exact term in
English (nor could I find it in various glossary's) but something like
cobweb-paper or cobwed-embossed paper should describe the paper in a certain
way. It is a semi-translucent paper with cobweb-like patterns embossed into it.
The question is: why is this motive (spider and web) used for this
particular application (photo-albums), who invented/introduced it, and, in
general, what's the story behind this ??
Anything on this subject is welcome, so feel free and answer me.
