I mentioned this in the PM's Tidal thread and thought it would be fun to post pictures. One weekend in the 80s I was visiting a friend who worked as a bookbinder (both editions of new books, and restorations if single, ancient volumes) and told her I'd always wanted a case for my cassettes. She said, "Let's go make one!" So into the studio we went. I did most of the work, with her coaching. It has served me well lo these many years. By now it's a bit worn at the corners. And as I said in the Tidal thread, as of last year I no longer have a car that plays tapes. So that's a disappointment. I suppose I could get a new head unit for the car, but I'm not *that* motivated. Still, this clamshell case is a lovely object, and I keep it next to my large stash of tapes, which I'm happy to play in the house. Er, barn.
