They were spiral bound.
They are supposed to be that way.
The pages flip from bottom to top. Not the right side.
I made my own WOZ and HOBBIT manuals the same as I did for houdini.
However they are not full color and the heavy wide paper cost me $28 for a ream, it took 1 1/2 reams to do the job.
So I got 2 manuals in black and white for about $30 each printed on heavy paper with a laser printer.
I made them at about 1/3 the price, I couldn't steal the special paper, my work doesnt have it or full color laser lol.
So, $100 might be pricey, but they are really nicely done and in full color.
Fedex office wanted $150 each to print them in full color and be not as nice as the factory ones.
However fedex office used their trimmer and spiral binder to do a pretty good job.
I'm happy with the result.
