I don't cut up books, but occasionally I'll have a book like Paris or Playing Trades with enough structural problems that its value is limited to the illustrations. I'll also picture perfectly sound books with unusual visual interest, either in bindings or illustrations.

Otherwise I'll simply list the books in inventory as I have the time. Eventually I'll order them by subject area...
