Subject: Basic gluing Question

This is a novice question but I need help.  I'm making a one-of-a-kind book-
5"x7". I need to paste/glue two pieces of colored Canson paper together.  I
don't want them to curl.  What do I use- I've made a few tests but each time
it
curls.  Thanks in advance!

Is there a digest version of this mailing list, and if so, how does one
select that version?

Subject: marbling happenings

Dear Book Arts List Members..............I would like to request..... if any
of you  ever hear of any marbling workshops, shows, new books, whatever,
that you send a note to me through the list. I try my best to keep people
informed through the column in the Guild Of Bookworkers Newsletter, but far
too often people call two weeks before a workshop and want it mentioned, but
it's too late to be included. The more people who have plenty of warning
about upcoming marbling events.....the more successful the event will be.

P.S. If any of you are having marbling problems and need technical advice, I
am happy to give it.....please send the request through the list and I will
answer through the list, so anyone else having the same problem may benefit.
Several of you have e-mailed or called directly, and Peter wisely suggested
the answers should come via the list so everyone could see
them...........................................................Best, Iris
Nevins

Subject: 10.000

It may not be very important to you, but we think it a *result*
worthwhile to give a little attention. Since May 1, 1996 our website
received 10.000
visitors. We are very much aware that many websites receive a lot
more visitors, but still....
This is a good time to think back and remember the help we received
from Peter Verheyen and Piet Wesselman when we made our first steps
in the HTML maze. Bookbinder Cor Knops always remained very
sympathetic. The Book Information Website kept on growing and will
keep on growing. The time and energy we put in the Book history
Timetable was very worthwhile thanks to many friendly reactions and
suggestions we received. We would like to propose a toast to all of
you, but have to lift and empty our glasses just the two of us in a cold
and wet Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

If you want to know where our visitors come from we invite you to click the
NEDSTAT image at the top of our indexpage and view the statistics provided.

Regards to all of you *book people*

Marian and Ton

There is and instructions for setting that option can be found at the
Book_Arts-L Archives. The URL is http://www.dreamscape.com/pdverhey, then
Book Arts Links, then Book_Arts-L which is one of the first links. The

Subject: Adhering paper to cloth for scrolls

Michael Morin raised an interesting idea in terms of cloth-backed scrolls.
For some time I have been wanting to find out how to merge cloth and paper
(e.g., as done in oriental scrolls).  References or other information would
be appreciated.

While I'm an amateur, I think that the idea of having responses to queries
be at a high level is fine.  One can always seek more information without
having to sort through the basics.  (Alternatively, I may have to eat my
words if the discussion is too complex).

Subject: List homepage

I'm in the process of revamping the look of the Book Arts Web and have
included a button bar on all pages to make navigation easier. I have also
put a direct link onto the "homepage" to the Book_Arts-L FAQ and Archive in
the hopes that this will make it easier for subscribers to set their options
and search the Archive.

The John Vassos Bibliography will be changed completely shortly, and is only
provisionally up.

Cheers,
Peter

Subject: Re: Basic gluing Question

Dear Marcia,

I've had good luck gluing two pieces of color copies together using
photographic dry mount tissue.  You can buy sheets of dry mount tissue at a
photo supply store.  To "glue" the papers together, sandwich the tissue
between the two sheets of paper and either put thewm in a dry mount press or
use an iron set on a low setting (no more than 180 degrees F).  I had a dry
mount press, but the box of tissue said an iron would work.  The paper did
not curl nor did I have any bubbles or ripples such as usually come when you
glue two pieces of paper together.  Good luck!

Subject: Re: Basic gluing Question

Rollataq glue is very good for this.  They sell a hand applicator full of
their special glue (dries flat, very thin film, neutral-pH, repositionable
for about 10 minutes and then makes a very solid bond paper-to-paper) for
about $25 (Light Impressions carries it, for one).  Or you could buy a
bottle of the glue, which is very similar in price to ordinary craft glues,
and use a brush.  It doesn't take much, although sometimes I want more than
the applicator lays down.
