Or from some of the people who actually make it (Rick Cavasin in Canada, a
kibbutz in Israel that makes excellent skins, etc.). Not that I'm not fond
of middlepersons, but that the best parchment-makers can't really afford
to go through middlemen anyhow: it's not worth the manufacturer's while to
give discounts to the distributor and the distributor can't afford to
mark up the best vellum and expect to sell it.
