: I would be very happy with comb binding. I would be very happy with
: copyright info on every page. I would be happy buying loose pages to
: bind myself at Kinkos or put in sheet protectors. I like the idea of
: a cd, but can definitely understand copyright problems...perhaps each
: image could have copyright info embedded in the jpg or gif. Perhaps
: this is just too much work to make it a viable option at the moment...

It's probably going to be different with each book.
Alex's books have an internal structure to them, step by step from
simple to complex that makes the comb bound books ideal.

Erfan's Hennaria has an internal structure of information along with
pictures, and fine line work, that makes a physical book ideal and
other possiblities untenable. At an 8 1/2 x 11 size one observer
commented it looked too much like a coloring book ... and I felt the
smaller size had an elegance that was pleasing. Pictures can always
be blown up for copying, but if a book looks "clunky" ... unacceptable.

The Native American book is good loose. There's no particular
structure there.

Looks to me as though it will be one book at a time, each unique, with
each author's needs taken into consideration as well as the artist's
use. And ... next payday I may invest in that binder.
