Blurb photo book falling part / pages detaching
I searched the forums and didn't see this topic, so I'm asking here:
I recently made and ordered a photobook from this site, using 8x10 inch portrait size, hardcover, with premium lustre paper.
About a week after receiving it and gently viewing the contents, the pages started to detach from the binding. I'm afraid if I read/view my book much more, the pages will completely fall out.
Anyone else have this problem? The book cost me $70. Kinda shocked that it's falling apart so quickly for such a price. Shame too, since the print quality of the pages and cover itself are nice-- I just want a book, not a stack of detached papers!
Here's an image. I didn't try to open the book "too far" or try to lay it flat. I treated the book fairly gently (it's mostly an art book after all), but I had to hold this book in this way so as to get a clear photo of how the pages are starting to simply detach.
I'm still curious as to how common an issue this is since I was hoping to order a bunch for family and friends. Anyone else have similar experience(s)? I'm rather put off by this, since the book here is something that basically encapsulates a huge personal project, but I'd be particularly sad if this were something more sentimental, like a wedding photo album book or something.
edit: contacted support, got a new copy of the book being printed/sent to me at no extra cost -- still very worried that this will happen again since I am (was?) planning to order a bunch for family / friends.
