Re: Buckram book cloth

You can also order directly for ICG which manufactures the cloth. Their telephone is 1-800-251-7529. I know at one point they were selling in smaller quantities, but you might want to check with them. The Grade D is still starch-filled, but the color is now (since about 2 years) colored using acrylic dyes which has made it somewhat more tedious to work with. Their "Devon" starch filled, comes in some attractive colors and is a lighter weight than the "D" cloth. Bookbinder's Warehouse sells the Devon, but I don't know about the "D" cloth. You can contact them at mailto:karenc5071@xxxxxxx (leave off the "mailto:"; if cutting and pasting... Otherwise just click on it.
