    Default Back Your Books at School

    At middle school it was very poular to 'back" your work books in your Mum 'n Dad's wallpaper. This then allowed you to write whatever you wanted on them, slogans, pop bands etc..
    At our school we were encouraged to do this by the teachers and it resulted in some really awful looking books with horrible paisley patterns of beige and yellow ochre.

    yep we had to do this too, and the only paper my mum had at the time, was awful (in the eyes of a teenager) I was so worried, I was gonna get the, you know what taken out of me, but my poor friends mum, had made her use a brown paper bag ,took the attention away from mine though.

    It was such a "big school" thing to do for me - did it in some dodgy wallpaper, tartan wrapping paper.....nice!! Still have my Chemistry exercise book covered in bright red 80's wallpaper with a big white blob on the cover - I'd written "Acetate did this GRRRR!!!" in the blob

    This was a very embarrassing practice in my senior school.
    I still can't believe one of my Geography exercise books had our bathroom wallpaper on it!

    I used wallpaper too, think it was living room's though rather than bathroom.

    Used to have the sticky see through wall protector rolls for my books. By the time secondary school started the practice was more of a voluntary one - and only the rough book was allowed to be defaced. And boy was it ever.
