bound. If the problem is that they are coming away from the boards, then
you will most likely need to have them re-bound. If the problem is that
they were bound with glue and the pages are literally falling out, you need
to either have the pages put back in, "tiped", or you should probably have
the volume re-bound. If the pages are sewn in and they are ripping out of
the stitching, you will need to have other work done.
Like I said, it depends on how they are falling apart and how much of the
original bindings you want to save.
Despina de la does a little bookbinding too......
