The Lineco brand is more expensive, but it works a little better. It goes on smoothly. Books by Hand dries quickly and leaves a messier, gummy finish. With the Lineco brand, I had fewer loose pages in the end. I could also leave it out in little containers all day and it wouldn't dry out by the time the next class came in. For 100 8x10 sketchbooks with about 40 pages, I only used about 1/4 of a bottle this size in the Lineco brand and about 1/2 of this bottle. So, a little of this stuff goes a long way!
-I use a brush to apply this. It's a cheap, stiff nylon bristle brush which makes it easy to spread a layer thinly.
-Make sure you've got a good press. I had some problems with bleed through between signatures when I first started.
-For wc blocks, I would recommend two layers of this stuff. I had pages partially pull away after drying from a heavy wash on the trial block (1 layer applied, 140# paper).
I tested it a bit on different materials and when gluing two different porous materials to each other (like felt to wood), this actually creates a stronger bond than commercial contact cement.
And of course papers basically become a single piece after being glued by this.
