One of the trademarks of Tagari publications, which is Bill's publishing
house, is lousy bindings.  He went to Singapore at one time for a printer
and those bindings started losing pages as soon as you opened the book.  The
books that Island Press, and 10 Speed Press (Canadian printer) were
excellent.

Another hallmark of Tagari's Publications is the terrible indexs.

Just a little history...

Many years ago, Mollison's "Permaculture: A Designer's Manual" was
republished in the US by Island press.  It is the same book inside, but the
Island Press version had a bland cover graphic (and different title).  The
good thing was that the binding was excellent.  Much more durable than the
chintzy Australia binding.  I would always buy used copies of the Island
Press edition for the binding.
