In my country wood free means 5% wood 95% Synthetic. Is there a special terminology in the U.S. for this kind of paper?
5% wood it not wood-free. But I am not in the USA, but what do you mean by synthetic? There's often cotton in some paper (and china clay) and some banknotes have no woodpulp in them at all. I think you are asking due to sustainability? Most pine is planted and replacements replanted to be turned in to paper nowadays (and other objects.) Many paper products use part or whole recycled paper, but unless it's bleached, which is not a very 'green' process, it's not white.
I was told that in the U.S 250 grams of cover paper are measured by caliper (thickness) not weight.
But grams is a weight, Used worldwide. It originated in France. All the paper and card I have bought is gauged in GSM. But some places that sell in vast bulk do sell by the pound weight.
and it was calculated as 60# offset .
60# is a bit meaningless. But yes it can be confusing. This may help >> http://paperworks.com/about-paper-weights
I would be very helpful if you could explained how the calculation was done. The page size is 8.25x11.
Thank you very much for your help
I am not sure why you are asking. Lulu's Print On Demand books are books in every respect. Create a Private one and order a Proof.
I will most likely never again publish another book with Lulu
It's not Lulu's fault that you clicked that option any more than it was their fault when I clicked it. But perhaps a greater description should be given on Lulu before people click it. In fact even the name Google Book Search does not realy give a clue to what it is. I thought it just listed books with Google's searchengine in the same way I can register my own site with searchengines. I only know Google as a searchengine, and don't even use it!

Well, I am done with this discussion, which has become pretty ridiculously off-point. I can only hope that Skoob sees the good sense in my original suggestion and acts on it.Over and out.
