    If I could club the little seal myself I'd love to have a wack. But then I use my lawnmower to chase and "disperse" rodents and carry my .22 rifle to the mailbox in case I see a groundhawg.

    Thanks David, very helpful as usual! And what a nice link! Bookmarked it on the spot.

    About the history of bookbinding here: I fear it's now mainly 'history'. Were at a binders fair some two years ago, but no imitation leatherette there. One guy was selling gorgeous papers, but he was a Britton!

    or I could go to an antiquariat, buy a finely bound old volume and strip it at home (evil grin!) - bibliophiliacs would be shocked to hear such abusive language...

    Regards,

    There are so many beautiful colours and textures there though that I may have to keep buying RFs just to try out different coverings

    I've already chosen three different colors for my three AE-1s

    I agree, Camerleather has a great product. I added red lizard skin to my Yashica Electro (black). Looks great. I know it cost more than the camera but I love the camera and it works great.

    Jason 3 x AE-1s? I definitely need at least another 2 Canonets to add to my current count of 2

    John sounds like many things in life. The restoration / customizing always costs more than the market value, but the emotional value is priceless

    You people are sick


    And that's good, I don't feel so alone...

    A colourful AE1, huh? Now there is a thought...

    I just went to the website and the prices are very reasonable... and the "KID" is "GOAT"... that's probably good, I was wondering how they were getting away with it...

    I was going to order one of the exotic leather kits for my medium format camera, but they don't list the Holga as a supported camera!

    But seriously, I will keep them in mind if/when the coverings on my Linhof go bad. Thanks for the info on the company, I like what they're doing!

    Technically, one belongs to my 8 year old son... It was given to me by my stepdad... That just means that one will end up being the brightest, loudest color they offer...

    ....and I just met a photo1 student who was given one to use... It has electrical tape holding the battery door closed.. I already have dibs on the purchase of it at the end of the semister...
