We just inherited a bound collection of NG mags from way back. They are bound and imprinted with a family name up until 2005. I am looking for a binder in the Northeast who can continue to bind the collection.
You should not have too much trouble finding bindery, as most large cities have several. If you are lucky enough to have inherited the airplane-and-globe Albrecht covers there ought to be at least one bindery that will be able to obtain copies. If it was one of the other once popular covers or something that was not standard to Geographics, you may have to opt for either a non-uniform cover or for the much less expensive slipcases the Society still offers. I'd recommend, if you can not match the existing binding easily, to go with the slipcases as the expense is so far less.
Good luck and we appreciate your continuing the tradition of faithfully preserving this worthwhile publication
