Re: [BKARTS] page hinging material

I don't recommend using any pressure sensitive or heat setting tapes for
hinges because I just do not trust their reliability. Rather, I use the
ungummed white linen tape sold in 4" rolls by Gaylord. It is strong,
archival and may be cut into strips of the length and width necessary for
the particular job. It can be made heat setting by coating one side with PVA
,  letting it dry and ironing it on when the strip is in place. I would coat
the length of tape and let it dry before cutting the strips into widths.
