Smith has been responsible for many innovations in construction and covering technique, design, and the use of materials. He created the BOOK WALL , as well as several new techniques in cover treatment, including the feathered ONLAY , and re-constituted and sectioned onlays, which allow a greater variety, subtlety, and fluidity of color and surface, all essential to his particular mode of expression. Smith is a member of the Crafts Centre of Great Britain (1956), the Guild of Contemporary Bookbinders (1959), and the Society of Artists and Designers (1967). He is also the author of The Lord of the rings and other bookbindings (1970), and New directions in bookbinding (1974).
