Re: [BKARTS] Nipping presses

A copy press such as those offered by Talas is not the same as a nipping press.  The antique copy presses are very pretty but not much practical use for a bookbinder.  They were made originally to copy letters. They don't have much daylight (space between base and platen), so by the time you get pressing boards in there, the size of book you can press is not very big.   So for a serious bookbinder or a school, it is better to buy a proper nipping press.
