Re: [BKARTS] Skinny gatherings.



Nancy,

That may be a reason in some instances but not always. Try sewing a book of
about 1 1'2" thickness with thin sections as opposed to thick ones. Thin
sections produces a solid text block with a minimum of swell and a very
smooth spine that makes for a smooth base for hand tooling.
