Re: [BKARTS] Squishy books



Hello, Barbara --
   If your journals are basically the same structure, and look different
only on the cover, why not wrap most of them and leave out only three or
four for people to touch, open, and get a real feel for. Then they merely
have to choose which cover design they prefer.
