Re: [BKARTS] Moleskin

Richard Minsky did it with a rat and can tell you more. For what it's worth though, "real" moleskin is a very soft, tightly-woven fabric often used for ledgers... Have fun. ;-)

Upon seeing a fairly fresh, unblemished dead mole on the path in the woods this morning, I was stricken with the desire to skin it, tan it with the lovely soft gray fur still on, and make a miniature book.

Have any of you every indulged such an impulse? Should I have carried it home and put it in a ziploc bag in my freezer?
