Re: Odd experiences in Bookbinding



We once bound up a ream of blank paper into a nice cloth hardcover for a
video production company who had been commissioned to do an historical video
on the early legal system of one of the States of Australia.

The book was to lay down on a bookshelf behind glass doors, spine facing
outwards, and an holographic image of a little man was to sit on the book,
and walk around on the cover, and speak about the legal system.

The title on the spine had to be so placed that, when the little man sat on
the book about half way down the spine length, with his legs dangling over
the spine edge, the title in gold on the spine could be read by people
looking on.

The production company sent us a copy of the video recording.  Quite
delightful!
