Tutorial: Hand Book Binding 4 by keyanadrake Tutorial: Hand Book Binding 4 by keyanadrake
Again, as I always say when I make anything visual on the computer, I apologise humbly that the quality is low and format very simple, I currently only have MS Paint and a mouse to do any digital drawing/media. I wanted to make this clear rather than necessarily pretty.

I just saw the pictures of your book - looks really great. May I ask how you got the printing to work? I'd have to send mine out to get printed so I want to make sure I get a good format.

I set it up on MSword with larger text so the text size was about size 12 when two digital pages were printed on one piece of paper. Then I manually worked out what pages needed to be printed where on each double sided piece of paper to create 20 page booklets for the binding.

Eg: I printed pages 1 and 20 together on one page, turned it over and printed pages 19 and 2 on the other side (in that order). From there: 3, 18 and 17, 4; 5, 16 and 15, 6; 7, 14 and 13, 8; 9, 12 and 11, 10.

And that's the first booklet for sewing and binding, the right order for the pages is a pattern so I used the same pattern to continue printing the next booklets. For book one it took about 95 physical A4 printed pages, or 380 A5 pages inside the book to print out the 97,000 words... and an entire ink cartridge.

So, I guess the simple answer is I worked it out and then manually printed it on my little inkjet printer.
