Yet Herman's perfect bound efforts are less than perfect. I am thinking mostly of Carl Weissner's The Braille Film. The text crawls into the gutter and dies there. Although Herman published this work in an act of friendship and love, to read it is is an act of rape. It is bound to tight and a complete reading would destroy the binding at the opening. Thus the appropriately named Braille Film remains a book I can only fondle but never read.
