Books

Books are available with 2 different binding methods:

  • Sewn Binding: Books have internal pages sewn together with white thread and glued to the cover spine.
  • Perfect Binding: Books have internal single pages glued to the cover spine.

In order to make sure that the product is glued perfectly, we recomend not to open it for the first 24 hours after the reception.
