There is a book in the collection entitled "State and Revolution" by V. I. Lenin that I had a devil of a time scanning because the margins were too close to the spine. I finally managed it, though, by scanning one page at a time and checking it before going on to the next one. Most of those pages I had to scan several times to get them to come out right. It was published by International Publishers and I used to read books published by that publisher regularly back when I could see. The tight margins were not a major problem then, but looking back on it I do think that it was very common for them to print books with those margins tight to the spine.

Wow! I can see I've gotten lucky with my mass markets. Maybe it's because I scan more nonfiction than fiction. Mayrie, have you noticed any pattern with the publisher or imprint of books that have writing too close to the spine?Monica Willyard "The best way to predict the future is to create it." -- Peter Drucker To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxput the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
