Quite interesting but are the volumes still glued or sewn?

I took it into my own hands and emailed the modern day founder about this binding situation and he emailed me back with a most assuring letter. It is quoted below, seems they do listen to their loyal customers. This is greatly appreciated.

" Dear Andy,

Thank you very much for taking the trouble of writing.

Please rest assured that all our books are again sewn & will continue to be so in both the UK & US.

We experimented with a small number of small reprints of lower pagination titles a year or two ago – you will appreciate that it can be difficult to get print prices to our quality, without unduly raising the retail prices for smaller reprint runs.

However we have discontinued the experiment, in part because of a few complaints such as yours, which I am always pleased to receive, not least because it proves how very important our production standards are to our readers.

Thank you again & with best wishes

David Campbell "

Now that we know all about the glue/sewn issue, do we know what volumes are on the way beyond Banville?
