Yes paste is my favorite. It is sometimes hard to find locally, so I
purchase it through Dick Blick. It is a very thick paste that is
specifically made to use on paper and it stays very flat and wrinkle free.
 Some people water it down, but I like to use it straight from the
container with a brush.
I also use PVA, but it is runny like Elmer's and warps the paper more, so
you have to weigh down the books to keep them flat.
Good Luck,
