I've been making book art content for a while and am just getting into

I have made a couple of large albums for one of my daughters using the
Japanese stab binding.  The large size of the pages allows the pages to open
flat, and the sewing is a lot nicer looking than a bunch of screw posts, at
least to us.  I folded each sheet down by the binding to create space
between sheets for the photos.


Hello all

I'm looking for advice on a book structure that will work for a fairly
large, elegant album-type book, with single sheets. I was going to use a
post binding, but I'd prefer a binding that will allow the book to open
either flat or close to it. I don't want to use a spiral or variations
thereof. Since this will be an edition (probably 20), I'd also prefer a
structure that requires a minimum of tedious labor.

Any suggestions?
