    Your page tells nothing about how to bind a book, and everything about advertising other sites.

    I have to assume you did not visit any of the links to specific pages on this website that are listed in the body of this article and at the end of this article.

    Either you didn’t bother to look around before making your judgments about this website, or step-by-step tutorials with detailed photos and explanations and tutorial videos don’t qualify as information “about how to bind a book.”

    I’m sorry you did not appreciate me mentioning several sites I found that helped me as I was learning to bind my books or the ebooks I purchased and found helpful.

    I’m sure that there is another website out there that will provide the information you want, in the format you prefer, and with the appropriate level of commerce for your tastes.

    Best of luck in your bookbinding endeavors,

    Hi Andrew,

    I’m with the last commenter on this one. Your site is called diy bookbinding. the title of this page is ‘instructions on how to bind a book.’

    so a visitor can be forgiven for expecting some detailed instructions, maybe some pictures too. but instead you offer some links to websites that want my money. and even your internal links are as informative as a dictionary.

    sorry you’re touchy about it, but this is not a DIY site. this is e-commerce. you can quit being defensive about it now.

    I make no excuses for attempting to earn some income from this site. I’m not touchy about that at all.

    But, the article ends with 5 links (2 of which are also mentioned further up in the text as well) to some very detailed bookbinding tutorials on this site which were completely dismissed.

    It probably would have been easier to just delete the comment in the first place, but I like to let people have their say.

    Thanks for leaving a comment,

    Are you going to have a tutorial for hard cover book binding?

    This website definitely helped me to learn about book binding. I’m going to try it out this week!

    Hi there,

    Your site did answer some of my questions, but you very kindly pointed me to a number of places where I could learn much more. Thank you very much for your help.

      Happy I could help. If there is something specific you’d like to see covered, please let me know. I’m working on new content for the site.
