Re: Advice on single signature binding source

In a message dated 98-09-29 17:05:20 EDT, you write:

<< The problem is, the book was produced as a single signature, stapled
 booklet, despite having around 60 pages.

 He has also requested that I interleave the printed pages with blank
 pages, as he is 'always discovering more facts'. This will up the page
 count to around 110.

A fast solution would be to cut the folios along the spine (in a guillotine),
which would yield single sheets that are still in order. Then intersperse the
blank pages and re-bind.

Ron Shepard's book has directions for sewing single sheet bindings. Once you
have the text block sewn, it can be cased in. You could even mount it in it's
own portfolio with room for a pen, pocket for notes, etc.

Two other ways to re-bind is the use of wire or plastic spiral binding. These
bindings yield a book that lays flat for writing. Both bindings can
incorporate a fairly sturdy cover.

Good luck and have fun!
