[BKARTS] longest book (concertina)



Hi,
I seem to recall a year or so ago there was a print project to make the
longest book. Does anyone know how long that book ended up or if there is a
record for the longest concertina book?
thanks

> I would recommend the Metal Supermarket. It has all kinds of metal rods,
all sizes and what they don't have they can get. You can buy in as small a
quantity as you want. Also great source for those zinc sheets everyone was
looking for a few months ago. BTW I have found using stainless steel is
cheaper and doens't rust.

as well.

people

are

> We decided to try a new approach to make these manuals more available.  We

> manuals for the various book arts. The different sections of the catalogue
> cover Design, Illustration, Bookbinding, Calligraphy, Papermaking
(includes
> Marbling), Printing, and Typography. Once in a section you can visit the
> other sections if interested.  The books listed are both new and
previously
> owned so some are subject to prior sale.  I hope you find something
