ML talk & binding question

I'm doing a talk on ML collecting to the Rochester (NY) Bibliophile Society 
tomorrow evening. The Sunday edition of the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle 
listed it in the things-to-do section, and promoted me to "publisher of the 
Modern Library." Yeesh.

I'm taking along some examples of early bindings. One thing that I happened 
upon recently has me curious -- it's a copy of Cellini's Autobiography, in a 
turquoise flex binding with shiny geometric figures in the surface of the 
material -- reminds me a piece of shower curtain. Is there a name for this 

Anyway, wish me luck. Just wish Henry'd already done his and I could crib 
from it ...
