Re: [BKARTS] Paper Grain Direction



In recent years the commercial paper industry has cut back on supplying
sheets that have the grain running in either direction.  Unless designers are
willing or able to buy very large quantities of a specific stock the choice of
grain direction is limited. This has lead to the larger book printing industry
being unable to produce many books (often oblong) according to the grain
direction dictates of craftsmanship.
