I guess the MDF is a good idea, although I'm not sure what they use to glue it together. I haven't used it before. I'm about to use 3-ply board for a rather large book (about 80cm x 50cm x 6cm thick). ...

Well, I've never had to do that before (thankfully!), but I'd think that 1 or 2 would be strongest, especially if you're thinking of sending it to a public library where it may be tossed around a bit ...

THanks for ...

That's interesting, and quite effective... What was it used for? How did you apply the print to the leather?

Cheers,
