[BKARTS] bone folders: a tale



very interesting to read so much about such a simple object.

i first came across a bone folder this summer when i was helping/observing
someone teach a book-binding class. i understood the purpose of scoring the
paper to make it easier to fold but i'm not sure the students got it at all.
(i'm 42; they were 12 or 13. i spent almost 10 years working in a print shop;
they were middle school students.)

anyway, the question is: should the teacher have had the students experiment
with folding the paper without scoring first and then showed them the miracle
of scoring?
