Re: preparing cloth

To:  Jeff Stiles

I have found very good results with the method described in

Japanese Bookbinding by Kojiro Ikegami.

 He covers in detail paste prep., selection of liner, application of liner
to the cloth, orientation of selvage etc etc.  I am sure there are some
occidental sources as well. If you can not find a copy let me know off list
and I will scan and forward the appropriate pages to you.
