Why is my New Yorker showing up misbound?

Twice now, my copy of the New Yorker has had two pages of the center signature way out of place (though no pages are missing). I would like to know why/how this happened (I think it's safe to say I'd remember if it had happened before, and I've been a regular subscriber for many years) and if anyone else has had the same problem (I assume it's not just me, but it's probably not a widespread thing because googling turns up nothing.)

How to rebind a book so it's ring bound, at home

I've bound quite a few printed versions of large books I bought as PDF and that works pretty well. Now I want to try it with bought books, but where I'm stuck is how to remove the glued spines. Has anyone else done this, and how did you do it? [more inside]

Does this type of binding exist for handouts and if so, what's it calle?

I need to produce a pile of program handouts, I'd originally thought I'd do them in ring binders, but I have to travel cross country and can't carry them. I then thought I'd try comb bound handouts (thinnish plastic back and acetate front).. the problem is there's no tables at the venue so it would be hard for people to take notes on them. Could do clipboards.. (but carrying difficult) and getting the handouts sent prior to the place would make me anxious/might not be a goer. So.. I think I need something like a thinnish comb bound handout with a cardboard back so people can lean on it to take notes. Problem is.. comb binding doesn't go through cardboard. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm in the UK.

Help me find books that are made as nicely as they're written.

BookBindingFilter: I greatly enjoyed reading this edition of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Some of the enjoyment was doubtless due to Tolkien's deathless prose, but I was surprised to find myself also enjoying handling, looking at, poring over a really beautifully crafted edition, with careful binding, stuck-together pages, a little built-in bookmark, etc.

Can anyone suggest other books I might like for these same reasons? Genre's not important; I'm a cheerful omnilege.

How to rebind large books

Is it possible to get a large (1000+ pages) book rebound without spending a bajillion dollars? One of the covers on a reference book got really badly damaged, and I'd like to repair it (or have it repaired) without spending more than $20 or so. I don't care overly much about how it looks, as long as it, you know, covers.

Book Binding Machines

Does anyone know of any book binding machines that will sew pages together? Most simple binding devices used in offices use thermal adhesive or ring binding. I’m looking for something more serious that will sew books together in the manner of traditional bound textbooks and hardcovers. It doesn’t have to be small, but neither can I deal with any giant factory equipment. Something the size of a large office photocopier would be ideal. Does such a device exist?
