Giant Case Bound Book
What does a giant case-bound (hard back) book look like? The following pictures tell the answer. Giant case bound books are made for one of four reasons that I can only summarize.
- For durability the publisher/customer wants heavier than average paper for the pages such as 100lb offset because there is so much copy or picture, the book ends up being REALLY thick.
- The author wants a large number of dramatic pictures to be wonderfully and dramatically displayed so they pick an extra wide format such as up to 18” square!
- The client/author wants the book to stand out from all others and is willing to spend a great deal of extra money on a giant sized hard-back book. You see oversized hard-back books in book sections of a large book store in categories such as fashion design, architecture, art and cook books
- The author wants a giant book because they want to “mirror” the effect of the books content; subjects such as mountains, tall buildings, airplanes, lakes etc.
