Where have all the buckrams gone?Scott,

Since you asked, can you help me with defining a Buckram?  Now that I'm asking, I can't find the particular book I'm curious about.  I'm sure it's listed and filed away.  But it has a rubbery texture, no cloth apparent.  That was a Modern book.  I do have another one in front of me that is similar, but by Doubleday.  This one is textured, also with a rubbery feel, but not as much as I recall with the Modern book.  How does the Buckram differ from something called "balloon?"

Forgive me, for I am a novice, eager to learn.  And thanks in advance!

  Lately I've been focusing on collecting buckrams. But I'm having a heck of a time locating any. All together, I own fewer than 40 - that's less than 10% of the buckrams known to exist!!!

  A few of you have been kind enough to point out buckrams to me when you see them appear on eBay, and in a few cases I've been able to snag them. Others have made me aware when they have one to sell, and I'm grateful to you all for these leads. But they are some SCARCE puppies!

  Anybody have ideas why this is so?
