I figured I would start with a simple manga that could serve as an example for future projects.

So I've been messing around with the new acquisition of the Epson 4800 printer. I printed full spreads (in draft mode) on 20lbs bond paper, with 1/4 graph printed on one side.

Below depicts a draft printing of a full page spread 17"x22".



Below is a comparative image showing the original print 5"x7.5" and draft printed signature 11"x17". Due to the thin, uncoated nature of 20lb bond, you can see the print from the back side.

This book was published in the original Japanese right-to-left imposition. Most western software imposes left-to-right, so I've had to manually impose each signature.
