Alright, I'm going to Staple next month where the emphasis is on errr.. well.. stapled books. So I had an idea and I thought some of you might dig it.

If I do my HCD comic on 4 sheets of standard paper in a certain order. I SHOULD be able to print one sheet on the back of the other. Cut them in half, staple, and fold for a book.

Of course I will do a nice cover on a light blue paper or something.

If I number correctly I would just have to scan and print!

I am going to try and get the page numbers squared away and I will post it up.

Let me know what you think!

I just mean you could do fewer pages (less printing/stapling) if you had more than one hour/comic per page.

That's the beauty of the whole thing. I print the pages on the back of the other page and the whole book is three pages with the cover.

Then I cut the pages in half, coalate and have six pieces of paper

staples and fold in half and now I have 20 pages(huh?).

well, it worked out when I did a test run. I guess we will see tomorrow.

hey -- your book looks just a little off to me.. check this out and see if it doesn't look easier?

If you're doing any sort of book, you always want to work in fours.
