There is a generic material called "Binder's Board". Which is the board that the covers of hardcover books are made from. In the industry, it is also called "Davey Board". I have done quite some searching around, but have not found a definitive source for the term. Does anyone know where this came from?
Davey seems like a person's name, so I can only guess that a person named Davey made this board or was one person who was well known at some time in the past.
