Re: [BKARTS] two questions (fan binding and altered books)



Ben, you Are full of beans.  Heres some more fodder.

I keep toying with buying a fan gluer, but I am a Hand Bookbinder and the
fan gluer would put my business on a machine level. I dont care for machine
reproduction.

I looked at Peters fan gluer, very very tasty. hmm.
