63.5 mm for 760 pages works out at over 83 microns per page.
Rough comparison with a few high-quality books around here (O'Reilly,
Cambridge University Press, Addison-Wesley) appears to show a range
of, roughly, 30 to 60 microns per page. And it's anything BUT
'tissue-paper' (or fine India paper, for that matter). Over 80u/pg
is _really_ thick paper -- not quite cardboard, but...:-)
