Dear Katie-
I suggest a concertina spine binding. With limited stitching you can add
pages, although not single--unless you add some sort or size fold. I'll send
you a  photo of a book, RUMBA, which I recently completed in this structure.
It's a large book 11.5 inches x 12.5 inches.  The pages are attached by an
additional two inch folded edge.  It would be a manageable structure, I
think, for an edition of twenty books.

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?
