Richard,

Thanks for all your insightful commentary on this list, your great website full
of fantastic bindings, and now a new term for us book artists: "Punk
Bookbinder." (It's what the caption in the above cited article calls him.)  For
those starting out more recently, maybe they can become a Heavy Metal Bookbinder
or a Hip-Hop Bookbinder.  Ah, it just doesn't have the same connotations...

Keep up the good work.

Eric
