I love thick books, nowadays, books are like half an inch thick, like 120 pages, which is OK for any use for a normal human being. But those book miss the massive feeling of old books, 300 pages is way too much for real use, it would take years to go throught, but they just look beautiful! Also, I realised that 300 pages is actually 300 "sheets" so there are 600 pages!

wow. The history of mankind and every organism could be documented in that book. But yeah, Thick books are just magical aren't they. I have one that is squarish and thick as well and it's the one book people just love the feel. Well done. You didn't stitch each signature in that did you?

Oh no, if there is one thing I can't afford is handstitching. Magical industrial strengh glue at your service. Smelly but its a kind of silicone sealer, so it keep flexibility after years. I did a stitched book for a custom order (coming soon) and it is so time consuming. But the result is one of a kind! If I did all my book with stitching, I would double my prices basicaly!

I know about hand stitching. I do all my books that way. I tried perfect binding but not sure I like it. I'll try this magic glue. What is it called and where do I get it. I do have to cut cost so more can afford my books.

Here in Canada, I use "Amazing goop" household. They got shoe goop too (for leather) These glues are so durable, I never found anything that got unglued! One thing is, one of the solvants used is polymetylsomthinglene, which i found out, is banned in U.S... So the goop in U.S. may not be the same. Anyway, its just a solvant, so I guess the glue stay the same. If one thing is good, you will get less fumes!

Thanks Mille,
I'll look out for it here. I am currently using a PVA for book binding that seems to work really well. It's PH neutrel and seems to have a latex base. It's really sticky and so flexible when dry. 
I used a water based adhesive in Australia called Inst-Bond. It was a water based contact adhesive. The catalyst was 97% water and 3% zinc. Fabulous stuff for gluing almost anything together. I haven't seen anything like it here but always on the look for things like this. I used lots of contact smelly stuff to make rubber costumes and stuff and this insta-bond was magic as there are no hydocarbon fumes to make you loopy after awhile. So thanks for that tip.
