Eggshells



"Eggshell--Crushed eggshell adhered to the cover of a binding and then
lacquered.  Popular in the early 20th century."

     Huh?  That is a quote from ABC of Bookbinding by Jane Greenfield,
Oak Knoll/Loyns Press, 1998.  Did they really use eggshells?  Were they
crushed real fine and then stuck onto a surface?  Leather or cloth?  It
seemed so strange I just wondered if any one has every seen one or done
one and what it was like.
