I have been thinking about purchasing Tommy Wonder's "Book of Wonders" two volume set for $90 from Penguin Magic.

Does anyone know if these hardback books have sewn signatures and decent paper stock?  That last thing I want to do is buy a hardback binding which is glued together like paper back books and has cheap paper stock. 

Hopefully it's sewn signatures and decent quality paper. 

I bought Joy of Cooking back in 2008 and it fell apart after just a few months because the huge book was glued together with no sewn signatures.. made me sick.

Hi Jennifer

They are very nice books. I'm not sure if they are sewn signatures, but I've attached images of the spine and cover. Good quality printing.

Some of my favorite magic books. Not only a very thorough guide to his tricks, but nice essays on his magic theory

cheers

Joe

Awesome, thank you they look great.  They have signatures which is a good thing, so they are sewn!  They look like gorgeous tombs you are holding!

😉  I get a 25 pack of Brodart plastic library covers for $25.  So I'll cover the dust jacket with them.  I do it in a better way than the libraries I feel.  I tape the plastic cover together without any tape stuck to the book.  I do it invisibly inside the fold.

Hi Jennifer,

Yes the Bools of Wonder have sewn signatures and are printed on quality stock.

I bought my set a number of years ago and have found them a great resource; not only for the explanations of the thinking behind the tricks that are explained but equally importantly for the insightful essays that are included in the two books.

I hope that you enjoy them as much as I have.

Philip
