Books. We love them. Chances are if you're reading this, you do too. And the fact that millions of books are bound with our glues makes us love them even more.  

We have been manufacturing glues for the book binding industry for nearly 70 years. When it comes to binding books, there are two major commercial techniques: traditional and perfect binding. Traditional bookbinding is generally used for hardcover books. Perfect binding is used for paperback books. 

Bookbinding glue has always been one of our premier glue products.

Book Covers We Love

We are told from a young age not to judge a book by its cover. This is a good motto to live by, but when it comes to books we've all picked up a few purely because the cover was awesome.

Today we wanted to focus on some awesome examples of book cover designs that we think really knock it out of the park.
