Next, let us a look at a fairly rare type of conversion. This book here. As I have explained earlier,this type of binding is called multi-section (tetsuyōsō). Now the book no longer has a cover, but it is a tetsuyōsō. When you leaf through it, nothing seems to be particularly odd or out of place. However, it is fairly large for a tetsuyōsō book, and if you look very carefully, I am not sure if you can see them properly, here on the margins you can see the marks where the binding holes once were.

I think you can see how complicated the procedure is. As to why the conversion was done,

This completes our discussion of rebinding and reformatting.
