On Demand Machinery offers an electronic version of its “How-To” guide on hardcover bookbinding and its application in producing books for the on-demand digital print industry. The 8-page pamphlet is for the benefit of on-demand book publishers, photo labs and manufacturing personnel engaged in digital printing.

ODM looked beneath the cover to see just what takes place from the time printed sheets are delivered from on-demand digital printers until the finished book is in the customer’s hands. The guide takes users on a tour explaining the definitions and terminology with graphic illustrations and photographs, to learn exactly what’s involved in the hardcover bookbinding process, from sewing and casemaking to casing-in and building-in.
