Binding of scores (loose sheets)

I have just printed out some material from IMSLP, and I have got scores that I cannot bind with just a saddle stitch.
I wonder if there is another technique to bind "fat" scores (70+ pages).

Perhaps I can punch holes and than sewing, but how? Any successful ideas?

Re: Comparing text fonts (Operatic Score)

Dorico? Wow. I have just noticed that it was not Sibelius, and I believed it was Finale. I will skip than xml for testing. I enjoyed it very much. I would like to see more Dorico (complex) examples in the future.

Differentiation of text sizes in score and parts

Can any music notation software create different sizes of staff-text items (dynamics, expression, technique) for parts and score?
I see an obvious difference in the older scores (and parts) in these sizes.
Options? Opinions?

Re: Comparing text fonts (Operatic Score)

I think the thin font shouldn't be too much of an issue, especially since the singer will have to memorise the score. But, nevertheless, I agree with you re the orchestral parts and lighting, Here's the copy of the score using Vollkorn. Opera (pg57 - vollkorn).pdf I still prefer the Carrig; here's ...

Re: Comparing text fonts (Operatic Score)

Still, I think it is to thin. In opera you have lights low and you really need to get it out without having bigger font.
Have you tried to combine November with Vollkorn?

Re: Composers vs Editors: Another controversial note

As explained in my original post, those who hear only a diminished seventh chord at this point, usually prefer the C natural Sorry for my to fast reading, I didn't noticed that you have written this statement. Anyway, me preferring dim chords still think that :s is more valid. Another side question...

Re: Comparing text fonts (Operatic Score)

I feel that I get the most attention from Old Standard, with the same height size comparing to the others. Personally, I dislike somewhat November because of several glyphs, despite its very elegant appearance. Also, it is very characteristic and not many fonts can be used together with it. It has a...

I think I will, therefore, go for the Centabel font, but I will report back with examples of the notation when the November font is implemented.
Have you tested Old Standard? Can you give a try?
