Figure it's time to talk more about paperbacking. I am falling in love with paperbacking vs. linenbacking. I have also found a new paper that is not masa, called mulberry paper. Where as masa is 100% sulphite, mulberry is 30% Japanese kozo and 70% sulphite. It is known to have long fibers that make it very durable. I have used masa before to paperback but something just didn't feel right about it after I took it off the board. Everything was fine but the poster always felt very rigid... This mulberry feels right...
So, steps to paperbacking:
Step 1: Do everything you normally do to prepare a poster to linenback...
Step 2: Have a solid surface or board with a water-proof finish (there is more to this board's surface - but a little mystery is fun)
Step 3: Using a polyester blend called Holytex (densities differ - I'll let you experiment until you find the one you like) paste the Holytex to the surface.
Step 4: Paste the paper to the Holytex.
Step 5: Paste the poster to the paper.
Surprising simple? It took me a long time to work out all the materials because nobody documents this type of backing.
