Re: [BKARTS] wrinkled endpapers



It's definetly a "schools of thought" thing.  Personally I support the exact opposite of Jack's opinion, so one can see that you can go any direction and make it work superbly or miserably.  It also depends, as one of several factors, on the "action" one desires in the book opening.  I receive many comments on how my books open, and I'm sure Jack does also.
