I picked this book in the library rack "books for sale" for $1 - the size is just exactly what I was looking for and this cover is very nicely done: wonderful linen cloth, smooth matte finish on the book board - all I had to do was pull the actual signatures with text (sorry!) and restrain myself from putting too many signatures inside. Actually two was just the right number. This cover stood up to a beating of a rather vigorous 19 days (January 9th through 28th), traveled with me quite a bit in different bags and in the car and overall looks like new!
Here is inside spread and I will follow with more shortly! :)
