Wire Bound

These books can have the same characteristics and be the same size as others shown on this page but the wire binding ensures that they open easily and lie flat on a table or desk. Popular binding colours are black, white and silver but other colours such as bronze, red, green and blue are available. A good choice for cook books and technical manuals.
