Re: [bookartsconnection] Preserving newprint
- I remeber seeing a tip on that book that Pat had published with tips and
resources. It involved soaking the newsprint in a solution of water and milk
of magenesium, but I can't remeber proportions or times. Anyone? Patrice,
are you still here in cyberspace?

- Thanks to those of you who responded to my request for ideas for
preserving newsprint; I've passed them along to my stepdaughter.
