             ***********************************************

I'm just checking out some ideas before deciding on a method of printing and
binding my books. Does anyone have information about the Doubleback Binding
System www.doubleback.com as they don't have much on their website and I
haven't been able to find much on the Internet or Book Arts. This is an
On-Demand bookbinding machine by Book-in-Hand Ltd designed to be generally
attached to digital toner based presses such as a DocuTech. This is a high
production cold glue binding method. It appears that an 8.5x11" book is
printed on a 11x17 inch sheet is bound at opposite sides, the cut in half.
It also seems that they are using a wraparound cover and the spine is glued
to the book block but they still achieve a book that lays flat when opened.
I have not heard of a machine actually going into production although it
appears machines were shown as early as 1998. Here are some details:

Details:
(1) dbFOLIO heavy duty model for trade book printers, and finishing houses.
Layflat pages. Books can be doubled back without creasing the spines. Inline
trimming.
(2) dbFLUSH cutsheet model for short run paperbacks. Flexible cold glue in
every page. Books can be doubled back without creasing the spines. Optional
inline trimming.

Questions:
(3) What is the status of this company?
(4) How can their books lay flat when the spine is glued to the cover, even
considering that flexible cold glue is used. Note that they say that the
spines will not be creased?
(5) How is the actual binding done?
(6) Can I look forward to getting my books printed with this method?
(7) How does this binding unit compare to some other similar methods?

Thanks for any information someone can provide.
