: reference. If it doesn't open flat and is manageable in size like
: most TDL books, I just go to a copy machine and make me a work
: of it. I don't want my "good" copy in the hands of most folks who
: will finger through it and leave finger smudges. Nor do I want
: my "good" copy too near me when I have henna paste on me. I have
: book now with stains of henna cause by me and a complete hand
: of a customer who forgot she had henna on her hand and laid the
: on the page. So to be used most effectively by me, it just needs
: be in a form that I can make copies of the pages again whenever I
: have sufficiently worn out my working copy.
: I haven't found either of the binding types to prohibit me from
: making the copies that I need. I then put the copies in binders
: meet my purpose. I especially wanted and needed a working copy of
: Erfan's book. I wanted a copy of only the pictures and wanted the
: pictures enlarged so that I could see the detail better.
: I personally find the ebooks to require a lot of ink but also and
: probably more problematic for me, they take a lot of time to
: and print out given the speed of my computer and printer.
: The combination that I would love to see would be a hard copy book
: with the spiral binding that has a companion CD. The CD would
: need to contain the individual designs...no text. The CD would
: to have the designs on it in a way that allowed individual designs
: rather than a page to be selected, put into an application to be
: manipulated and then printed out. And by manipulation, I mean be
: enlarged/reduced as needed. I would love to have the flexibility
: pick design 21 and design 52 and design 66 and be able to put them
: together in whatever order I needed them to be, for the purpose I
: needed them, at a particular time. I have a number of CDs of
: and patterns that I draw on for inspiration in just that way.
: than working from five books, I would rather be able to choose
: designs from the various companion CDs and print just those
: and few designs out to have before me to work from.
: The book and companion CD would provide the presentation the
: want and need with the book, and the flexibility some artists
: want with the CD.
