Interests
I've got both of the Hiromu Arakawa 'Art of Fullmetal Alchemist' books. I use them for visual reference, but the binding on the first volume is not of the best quality. And over the years (I suppose it has been years) the binding has become slightly detached from the pages. Not terribly badly, but enough so that it was noticeable and I began to worry about the integrity of the book. So the day before yesterday (I think it was) I did a stupid thing. I decided to squeeze some Superglue into the gaps between the binding and the pages. And Hey Presto!.....it was a mistake. I should have left the book as it was and just carried on using it. After all, it is my copy. But it still works. I mean it still opens and the pages and the binding are actually more together than they were before. But it doesn't feel the way that it did before. It doesn't open the way that it did before. And having made the pages tighter....it doesn't fall open the way that it did before. Which may have made the book actually worse for the purposes of using it for visual reference.

Because I bought them cheaply, I was never that precious about these art books. I didn't mistreat them, but my attitude was very much: 'They are there to be used'. But now that the book is knackered....I'm actually feeling a bit emotional about it. I sort of miss it - the way that it was - and I'm not quite sure what to do about it. I've checked the prices, and if I were to replace my copy with one in better condition, it would cost me a great deal more than it did to buy it in the first place. And that being the case....I might be more reluctant to use my replacement copy for visual reference. So I think I'll just stick with my knackered and glued-up old copy. I suppose it is at least mine. I have made it my own. And having knackered it, I still don't have to be too precious about how I treat it, do I?
