Re: [BKARTS] Stitched perfect bound book



Bertelsman in Germany uses a system there the Signatures are stapled with Synthetic staples which are melted on the spine with the applied Adhesive.
the spine is notched to give it a larger are for the glue.


See if the Thread is continuos or stapled.

Hi Tony... There is no such animal as a sewn perfect bound book. A perfect
binding is by definition an unsewn bookblock of individual leaves held together
with a glue of some type on the spine.
I suspect that what you have is a sewn binding in wraps (wraps being paper
covers which are attached using an adhesive bond and most often adhered only on
the spine). Think Dover quality paperbacks.
Any machine bindery which produces saddle sewn bindings should be able to
accommodate your needs. I think the world of Cardoza-James
(http://www.cardozajames.com/) who, if not interested in your job will I'm sure be able to put you
on to someone in your locality.
In the Southeast you might consider the Rose Printing Company
(http://www.roseprinting.com/electroPublisher/website/index.cfm? pageID=6).
