I'm working with Frank Arre's Classic Cruise Book Reproductions (http://www.navycruisebooks.net) to provide you with the opportunity of having an old cruise book reproduced. All reproductions are in an 8x10 format regardless of the book's original size. The scans are printed on 24 lb, 98 bright paper (double-sided) and plastic see-through covers are then inserted front and back. Finally the book is bound with a black plastic comb to hold it together. Please note that this is not a hard-cover book.
