: Seems what I hear from artists is:
: It MUST lay flat.


: The patterns must be clear and easy to see.
: If a page gets killed, people would like a way to replace it.
: If a pattern page is complicated or has boobies on it ... the artist
: needs to be able to remove it from the pile.
: They want the best value for money possible.

all more yes

: Comb bound will both lay flat and is acceptable to bookstores.

That's a damn fine decent option, I agree! The only down side to this
is I would be petrified to ever take it anywhere, in fear that it
would get sloshed on and destroyed. But it would lay flat, stay
together and look mighty nice.

: E-books are great for some people, but eat up ink cartridges.

Yup. That's kept me from buying some books I'd like right now, also
because I don't have my good printer hooked up any more, and my
little 3-in-1 scanner copier fax printer can't handle that kind of
output. It seems to go dry after only a page or two.

: E-books (or CD rom) is the only way I can do color.

Color is less important to me.

: Tape bound will suit other sizes, suits Barnes and Noble, but
: quite lay flat, and will break up over time.

I personally detest tape bound, they shred and destroy themselves
over time alright. Bloody god awful mess.

No doubt you will still find that thin line to please the most people
possible regardless. I hope my own 2 cents helps out too.
