RE: RARA-AVIS: More on Gold Medal Books rebound: after Crider and DJ Mark

From: Todd Mason (

Some libraries, of course, have had mm pbs rebound into heavy covers over the years, which I suspect is what Faulkner was referring to; Permabook/Ballantine-like (I thing both did this, or is my memory playing me false?) stiffening/laminating of the paperback covers is also not uncommon...companies have been willing to do this. Some of my pbs could use this or some similar regluing. TM

Some publishers, like Permabooks, issued some hardbound books in paperback size, and Ballantine experimented with simultaneous hard/soft publication. But I've never seen any paperbacks that people had bound. Maybe there are some, though. Or maybe that was just something Faulkner thought of saying.

I should have mentioned that John Faulkner is William's brother. He wrote a pretty funny series of books for Gold Medal set along Cabin Road.
