[BKARTS] tie me Kangaroo down, mate

	In Jan 2003, 1 US dollar yielded 1.7 Australian dollars;  in  March
2007 it was 1.2 Australian dollars.  As a consequence of the prevailing
miserable exchange rate, Hollander's no longer carries kangaroo leather.
 I have become addicted to this substance, and I prefer it to almost all
other leathers for creative bookbinding:  it's smoothness, it's divine
luminosity (sigh!).  
	Does anyone know of another source?
I am an old man and have known many troubles, but most of them never happened.
---- Mark Twain
