I am a brodart fan as well. If you order, use the code WEBLUV at
checkout to save 20%...I think that still works. I have gone the
archival route, using 10-427-005. I guess I bought into the unprinted
paper backing and chemically inert blah blah. Buy it by the roll if you
have an entire library to cover. I think it works out to 150 books or
so out of a roll. Try to think of how a whole wall of Mylar spines
will look, though. It is a bit shiny and may interfere with
reading/viewing the spines. The super clear works really well, too.
