I was asked today if I ever used other bookbinders. No, not really I said but I do experiment from time to time. Here is an example done by Houchen Bindery ([url=http://www.houchenbindery.com

At first glance it looks like any other book I have made.
But they do things different there. This was hand sewn with the threads going through the crease of the comic rather than the sides. Then it was not trimmed in any fashion.
The result was a little loosey goosey for my tastes. The cover felt lightweight and cheap. The stamping was muddy.
But you can open each comic in this book like it was a comic by itself. And you could take this apart and get back your individual comics if you knew what you were doing.
So I say to each their own.
