Actually, those do look quite interesting and desirable -- except for the
$199 price tag. :(

Including the font/decorative initials sources I gave earlier, all the
bookmarks I have in relation to bookbinding, typography and related stuff
are below.

I hope that's not more than you wanted to know (although I'm sure it's far
from complete -- or, as they used to say, "compleat" -- and would welcome
any additional ones of any interest or import). ;)  And, once again, don't
blame me if they're not there any more.

PS. I hope this list of URLs doesn't come out as weird as the last one I
sent out came back to me...
