Re: [BKARTS] tippins?



Earl, 

To Tip - in means to take a single page, loose that is, and to fasten it
somehow to the signature of a book.  This is most often done with plates and
tissue paper and is accomplished by using guards, little 1/4" strips of
paper either glued or sewn (a la Keith Smith, whose non-adhesive methods I
adore.) And good book on Bookbinding will show you what it means to tip-in.


I hope this helps.

John

What does the word "tippins' or "tippin" or "tipin" mean in the book  
world?
