Binding problem resolved

Unfortunately, quite a few copies of the first printing of my book had a binding problem. Some copies were basically falling apart after some use! This problem, which was related to the glue or gluing process, was resolved with the 2nd printing (April 2011) which was sewn bound (as will future reprints). A 3rd printing is right around the corner, and a number of errors will be fixed with that printing. This printing will be done in the US, while the previous ones were done in England.

    I’m one of the unfortunate early adopters of this book. I love the book and illustrations but I don’t use it very often because I basically have 450 loose pages! I need to figure out some system to hold it all together. I’m thinking about tossing the cover and using big clamps… or maybe hole punching the entire thing and putting it in a binder.

  2. Hi,
    I know some people have had it rebound. Maybe a place like Kinko’s would do that? However, you should go back to the bookstore and ask for a new copy, telling them that this binding problem is well known to the publisher and that they generally agree to replace such copies from the 2010 printings. Not sure if you will need the receipt for that…
