Not such a bargain
So, I measured the contents. The sheet is 60 X 30cm.
Which works out at 1800 square cm, 600 Sq cm per £.
A roll of Gaugemaster cork is 900 X 600 cm and costs £5.50 from eHattons.
That's 540,000 Sq cm or 98,181 Sq cm per £
(Please, someone check my maths. I failed both my AS and A levels as well as only scraping a pass at O level so I am an acknowledged thicky)
The bookshop version isn't quite such a bargain as I first thought. On the other hand, you can buy it in a high street and there is a very nice cardboard roll in the centre. Handy if you need a tiny bit at the end of corking your layout maybe.
