Book binding quality control

The Library Binding Institute has done a lot of work on standards,
(currently in 8th edition, but being revised) Your local library probably
has a copy of this (but make sure it's an 8th or later edition). The 8th
edition is the first one that takes into account the protection of the
text, and the flexibility and use-ability of the binding, rather than
strength of the binding alone.

The book listed below is a collection of articles, some dealing with testing
binding quality.
