Re: tacketting

I've done it quite a bit lately. I find it works great especially with
larger books where I don't want to rely on the Japanese paper alone for
strength in the repair. After the tacketting it's a straightforward
Japanese paper repair, ie touch up...

Feel free to give me a call. You did see the write up in the BPG Annual by
Robert Espinosa a few years back, didn't you?
