Re: [BKARTS] book cloth



Most HANDMADE Japanese paper does not have a discernable grain direction and
it might not matter when you are pasting it to back fabric. If the paper is
machinemade, it's a different story. Don't take it for granted. Test first
by pasting samples with the grain of the paper in different directions. If
the fabric wrinkles or bubbles, the paper grain is in the wrong direction.
