Re: Paste Papers

After I binding a book or covering a box with paste paper, I have
"polished" it by rubbing a clean cloth on beeswax and then rubbing the
paste paper with it.  A bit time-consuming, but it does seal the paper and
give a different finish.

Resolve to be sensitive to the young, compassionate with the
old, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant with the weak,
for sometime in life you will have been all of these.
