Re: Japanese Book Cloth

The Japanese book cloths are a very fine quality often silk or synthetic
with wonderful textures and colors. They are also usually lined with thin
paper so that adhesives don's leak through. Their surface is very sensitive
and utmost care required when working with them. Additionally they can also
be very pricey. Often well worth it though.
