I received a craft book (so 8 1/2" by 11", just over 1/4" thick) that was shipped in what appears to be gift wrap paper. It is thicker than some gift wrap I've seen, but gift wrap with the design on the inside nonetheless. The corners of the package were not taped, so the postal machinery ripped the package open (I'm surprised it got to me) and the back cover of the book has been gouged and rubbed off. It kind of looks like someone took sandpaper to the back corner of the book with a very heavy hand. The other three corners were also damaged, and there are a few other spots where the machinery damaged the cover. Definitely not postable at this point.
I will mark it RWAP, but not sure whether to say damaged by sender or by USPS. I think if it had been wrapped properly it would have been fine, but of course I have no way of absolutely knowing that.
Thanks for your help!
And someone very well could have used sandpaper on a corner of the book as that is sometimes recommended here to remove unwanted things on books.
