How do I add a hardcover to a paperback book?

I have paperbacks that are out of print and I would like to transform them into leather hardcover books - is this possible?

Its possible, but I think you only get good results with signature bound paperbacks. I don't think you can bind "perfectly" bound books.

Look for 'ibles on "book binding" like these
