If books had been invented after the computer, they would have been considered a big breakthrough. Books have several hundred simultaneous paper-thin, flexible displays. They boot instantly. They run on very low power at a very low cost.
Prof. Joseph M. Jacobson, MIT Media Lab, quoted in the New York Times, Apr 8, 1988, page B2.

Pasted Vs Saddle Stitch

Saddle Stitch

The most popular method, saddle stitching holds the sheets by 2 metal stitches or staples. With this method, pages are spread open at the center, then hung on saddle to be stitched, or stapled, through the fold line at the spine. Ideal for projects with no more than about 60 pages, depending on the sheet weight, this is the simplest and most economical way to bind. Meant for 8-160 pages.


The paste-on-fold binding method is more cost effective to produce than a saddle-stitch or perfect-bound book. Examples of paste-on-fold products are college course schedules and seminar catalogs. Meant for 8, 16, 32 or 48 pages .
