Hi Conor,

You are right, there is no good place in town to buy board.  I buy my  
bookboard from Hollander's online.  It is much thicker than you  
describe, but they have a lot of great supplies.  And other folks at  
the meeting may have different idea's.


Quoting Conor Walker <[address removed]>:

Dear Austin Book Arts Meetup,

I make small boxes to house cassette tapes. In the past I've used a
specific board, which I can't seem to find in Austin. The board is
about as thick as 6-ply poster board, however unlike most poster
board it is acid free and has a gorgeous
natural/somewhat fib­rous hue and a smooth layer of wax finish on
both sides of the board. The wax allows for the flexibility and
durability needed for multiple types of folding. 

As a neophyte I do not know the name of the board in question. If my
description doesn't ring a bell, I'm open to trying others types of
boards. If you know of a good board, perhaps 4-ply museum board,
please let me know. 

I suppose I could have waited until tomorrows meeting for advice, but
I'm young and impatient.
