Hi Lesha,
I am not sure you want the cheapest PVA, as PVA is a generic term and you 
can get quality or something less.  For most bookbinidng purposes you will 
want a PVA which dries clear, is flexible, and is acid=free.  We have a 
formulation which we call Nicobond that serves these purposes.  It is 
$8/pint; $14/quart.
With regards,
Sam Ellenport
