It's this vile shiny stuff favoured by many schools in years passed (and my own grandmother)... It didn't soak it up so much as spread it around as it was practically greaseproof paper. To quote a 1980's Ben Elton stand-up routine, 'One good wipe and you've smeared it all over your hips' :lol:

Perhaps not. It might however have a bearing on how some potential customers of his book feel about buying it.
