    Hey all! So I've been planning on collecting all the BIONICLE online story serials into one big physical hardback volume to put with my other BIONICLE books, however I've never attempted something like this, and the tutorials I've looked at have been very varied in method. So onto the reason I made this thread: I was wondering if any of my fellow tfw members had ever attempted bookmaking like this, and if any of you had any tips for me before I make a big mess of this project. :lol 

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Yep. Had to do books for portfolio.

    Not sure what their prices are, but these people do hardbacks. Hard Cover Book Binding
    You'll need to get your comics into PDFs, though.

    if you really want to do it by yourself and need help, feel free to shoot me a pm.

    Cheers

    Given the illegality of doing so in my current area of residence, I have no comment.

    I wondered the same thing. Thought young Bee had grown up a bit too quick!

    How about a three-team teaser? :D

    I too thought this was the kind of bookmaking that involved setting odds. How about "assembling/compiling a book."
