Re: clam shell book case with ribbon/tape thru spine

Dear Nancy,

I saw the finished structure at the Dallas Craft Guild; the book I saw was
made by Catherine Burkhard, who is an excellent conservationist and
traditionalist bookbinder.

I could not get further information about the book.  If you have an address
for Hugo Peller, I would be most appreciative.

Many thanks, jansapp@xxxxxxx
