Re: [BKARTS] [bookbinding] New Member; New To Bookbinding

This is a great group.  But you should also check out the BOOK_ARTS group,  e-mail as above.  I took classes in
bookbinding, but almost everything I learned I did so from the very generous and experiencd members of this group.  When
it comes to such intricate things as hot stamping and edge gilding, their collective advice was life-saving.

	The Belgian surrealist painter Renee Magritte entered a cheese store in Brussels to purchase a wheel of Swiss cheese. 
The owner pulled a wheel from the front window, but Magritte said he preferred the one on the back counter.
	?But they are identical,? the owner protested.
	?No,? Magritte insisted.  ?This one?s been stared at.?
