Re: [BKARTS] anyone ever rounded a link-stitched(coptic) book?

Don -- in Keith Smith's vol 3 Nonadhesive Binding book there is a set of
directions for rounding.  it involves a more delicate process than normal
rounding, and the end result does not appear to loosen things. however, he
states that it's a new idea that he's developed with colleagues and hasn't
yet withstood the test of time.

i was curious as to whether anyone had tried this new method.
