I was looking for a bookbinding text. The descriptions publishers provide give you some idea of what a book is about, but I personally look for reviews by the real people in the world who have actually read the book. It was during my study of reviews that I came across a little gem.
Most book reviews are about the content of the book, but when you are dealing with people who actually create the binding the book is presented in, you get the committed bookbinder whose review is about the the binding of the book! I love it!
Reviews for Manual of Bookbinding
This is a print-on-demand verison Book rating:4
I’ve got a copy of this book and to be surprised to find that this is a print-on-demand edition. The prints are not that clear when compared to the original edition and the binding is perfect binding instead of section-sewn paperback. Overall this is only acceptable.
