One thing it sure won't have is foil accents (embossed gold bits on the cards) - I always think those look like trashy greeting cards. I was married to a Master Gilder for 10 yrs, so I'm probably a bit fussy about these things

Thanks muchly for those other movie tips - will try to get hold of them to watch while I work on the Companion Book over the winter
Heehee...I meant one really large card, like, oh, a 2x5 foot one, to hang in the gallery hall.
