Confirmed Bindings for Each Giant Title

The following table identifies actual binding styles confirmed to exist for each title in the giants series. (Click here for a table of reported regular bindings.) A dot in a cell below a number identifies a title bound in that style as reported by a collector. If a row is shaded in blue, it is extremely likely that all bindings in existence for that title are dotted. Click a binding style number to see an example of that style and to read its parameters. (If your browser has trouble with this function, click here instead.)

To see the total number of titles reported to have come in each binding style, go to the bottom of this table. To see a list of titles that came in a specific binding, use the Bindings Finder feature.

Obviously, this is an ongoing project that requires input from lots of folks—like you, for instance! If you have a title in a binding style not dotted here, please let us know so we can add it to the table. Click here for info about validating a new find.

Special thanks to Ron Holl of the Amenities Website who conceived this project and to ModernLib stalwarts John Peterson and John Wolansky who along with Ron contributed the bulk of the original material for the table.
