Step one: ha-sa-mi (find a bigger pair then mine)
Step two: target
Step three: Cut front cover off carefully (applies to hardcover only)
Step four: Peel back binding away from content
Step five: Cut back off (easier then cover)
Step six: Left with content
Step seven: Removing back binding, hot iron and foil (I heard you can use a paper cutter to cut the back off, but I don’t have one)
Step eight: rub the binding back and forth with the iron set to low and covered with foil (don’t want it to be too hot or else it’ll burn)
Step nine: start pulling, you just want to get the binding warmed up so its easier to rip apart (be extra careful, don’t want to rip any pages)
Step ten: half way done!
Step eleven: if you’re careful you’ll end up with something like this


Hope you enjoyed watching me take apart an artbook, stay tuned for scans :3

Your sacrifice of an artbook for us less financially-able fans makes me shed manly tears.
