E-book to flat-back (Part 1) - CaiLun.info - Handmade Artist Books Journals Albums Paper & Bookbinding Blog - Cai Lun - Dennis Yuen: "E-book to flat-back (Part 1)
I’ve got a new project: to bind an e-book that I borrowed from the New York Public Library into a flat back that I can carry around and flip through physically.

I borrowed a Japanese vocabulary book from NYPL's digital collection. With “Adobe Digital Editions,” I could read it on the computer; but for a vocabulary book, I really want to carry it around and flip through it whenever and wherever I can.
Adobe Digital Editions

Because the book is in fact a scanned version, it isn’t ideal to port it onto my Kindle. Luckily, this book is fully printable. So I decided to recreate a printed version of the book, fully bound and cased. After a few trials, I got the printing right and here is how I prepare my signatures:
“Sizing-up” the pages
The dimensions of the pages are 4'x6'. I first 'printed' (exported) all the pages of the book from the special Adobe reader into a single PDF, then enlarged the page-size by re-printing it into another PDF of 5.5'x8.5' (half-letter).

Digital sections
In order to print the pages in 2-up, I needed to create 1 PDF per section, so that I can layout the pages correctly. There are 148 pages"
