Re: [BKARTS] Making Cloth into Bookcloth - related follow-up question

Years ago I built some clamshell boxes.

I used a product (paper with a heat-sensitive adhesive) that was for use
with dry-mount presses to make stancard cloth ready to use as bookcloth.

Anyone know if something like that is still available?

Many thanks in advance.

I bought some wonderful fabric scraps (from sample books) in downtown
L.A. today and I'd like to use them to bind books. I need to back them
with some kind of paper first, tho, to keep the glue from soaking
through the fabric. I have read about ironing freezer paper on the back,
but I've also read that the paper lets go eventually, so that won't do.
Can any of you give me some suggestions on how to back this fabric in
order to made it suitable for bookbinding? Thanks!
