Q. How do I bind a braille book?

A. When binding a Braille book into multiple volumes, volume sizes should be approximately 70–90 pages, with no more than a 15-page variation between volumes.

Binding machines and combs (the plastic binding part) are available at office supply stores. Check in their "presentation" section. You need to get a binding machine heavy enough to handle braille paper, which is quite heavy.

The 11 x 11 inch covers are available from APH ($2.50/pair).
