Is It Sewn

Recommended Posts

Hi, there! I own a hodgepodge of editions, and would like to begin to be more intentional in my collecting. Here’s a thread dedicated to question #1 for a collector: Is it sewn or glued only? I have only begun to investigate this question, and have many assumptions and gaps in my knowledge. Please help!

AKOTSK UK is glued (it has head/tail bands so it tricked me at first).

I can't get to World of Ice & Fire right now.

I stopped by at B&N today, and unfortunately the US ed. of Fire & Blood is glued. I don’t have confirmation of this, but based on pictures I’ve seen on eBay, the UK edition is also glued, as I would expect.

The World of Ice & Fire (US) is in shrinkwrap, so, I couldn’t tell for certain, and I’d be happy to learn otherwise, but, usually if a book is sewn, it is fairly easy to be certain. So I’m going to note it as glued. Luckily, the UK edition definitely appears to be sewn, per YouTube:
