Sandra, when I mentioned tissue I didn't mean glassine (which I've learned I
can't buy here at all, I order it by the roll -which was why I was trying to
get a current catalogue and finally went with Dan Smith), I meant the big
sheets of fluffy crispy tissue for wrapping vintage clothing, books, filling
in boxes. It's softer and whiter than glassine, generally a really useful
thing to have around and feels great to handle. Sometimes I'll put a little
piece of it between a calfskin binding or illustrations (acid inks) and the
title page, it helps slow acid migration but is thin enough to not hurt the
I took Wendy's description to mean the clear acid free plastic that is
ironed or sometimes closed with tiny strips of acid free adhesive.
