Rebinding Your Damaged Books (Tome 291)

In this episode Jeff is joined by two Tome Show newbies - Simon Oberbrinkmann and Jason Shamblin - to talk about rebinding damaged D&D books. The 5e D&D core books are notorious for falling apart due to the glue used in the binding process. What can you do do when this happens? Other than Calling Wizards of the Coast's customer service line, you can rebind your books yourself, or have a local shop do it. Listen to this episode to hear more!

Here are images of the rebound books discussed in the episode:
