Re: [BKARTS] Saving sections made up of thick paper



Alex,

What adhesive are you using on the spine? You are probably not using enough
adhesive either. Thick sections leave big gaps between the ridges of each
section when they are sewn together. These gaps must be filled in with adhesive.
Super should be used on tape sewn books as with any other case binding. It
helps to keep the spine from expanding and it aids in preventing  the tapes from
showing under the linings.
