Re: [BKARTS] Bible end paper



I am talking about endpapers. Their website is sketchy so it's probably best to call them and ask. I usually order this paper in small quantities, say 20 sheets at a time. No problem, and since I am not far from Chicago, it's here the next day.

Question:
Is Vernon talking about endpapers or about book covering material?
As far as I know, Gane Brothers makes only the latter., see
http://www.ganebrothers.com/imitationleather.htm. No paper products seem
to be mentioned on their website.
Gane brothers does a lot of wholesaleing, but I have found their
salesmen very cooperative, and they are willing to cut as little as 5 yards
of material.
I have found their products very pretty, and I often use them as an
example of why synthetic leather book covering materials don't have to look
cheap.
Coincidentally, I have covered several Bibles with their products.

Try Gane Brothers in Chicago. (ganebrothers.com or 800/323-0596) They
have black in matte or glossy and it's a bit heavy for my liking, but
it works. If there are other sources I would like to hear about them as
well.

I have three modern Bibles to re-case and I need a source for end
paper.
The black and silky on one side and white paper on the other side kind
of paper.


Thanks,

The Belgian surrealist painter Renee Magritte entered a cheese store in
Brussels to purchase a wheel of Swiss cheese. The owner pulled a wheel
from the front window, but Magritte said he preferred the one on the back
counter.
“But they are identical,” the owner protested.
“No,” Magritte insisted. “This one’s been stared at.”
