[BKARTS] Compiling Book Arts Resources

Greetings to Everyone:

The Resource Committee of the Los Angeles Book Arts Center would like to 
enlist your assistance in developing it's website so that it is useful to you 
and all book and paper artists. We each have our favorite sources for 
bookbinding/book art equipment, tools, classes, and resources. If we could 
pool the collective sources used by all book and paper artists the resulting 
list would be a powerful resource. To that end, please help us by taking a 
few moments to recommend stores, schools, websites and other resources that 
you find invaluable as a book artist. All information will be collected, 
sorted, verified and made available to everyone at our website, <A HREF="www.LABookArts.com">www.LA
BookArts.com</A>.  Please email your responses to Diana Britt at (<A HREF="mailto:dkbritt@xxxxxxxxxxxxx";>
