Re: [BKARTS] buying fish skins

I did leather spined binding with an eelskin once. Book was just under a
centimeter thick. Worked like a charm. A salmon can be over a foot long and
several inches wide. There are plenty of books that fit those constraints.
No worries.

How can these skins be used in bookbinding?  Even for a spine piece for 
a quarter binding, they wouldn't be sufficiently wide.
