Re: [BKARTS] Casing a series of varying height

At that variable, make them fit the individual books so that those look nice on the squares. Then measuring from the tail/bottom, find a nice location for the title so that is uniform across. The varying heights of the book will be less noticeable when the books are on the shelf if the titles all line up.



* From: Bob Ritchie

I am re-casing a married series of 7 vols., published over several years and printed by various printers. The text blocks vary in height by up to one-half inch. What is the custom in this situation: to keep the squares equal (resulting in books not uniform in height), or to make the boards equal in height (resulting in squares of varying size)?
