I do prefer masking tape to sticky tape. It’s stronger, lies flatter, and doesn’t go yellow over time and get crunchy like some sticky tapes do. The better quality tapes, like what we call here ‘magic tape’ works fine though. I don ‘t know what you call masking tape in the US?

When I tape two sheets together, I find that when I have the edges actually touching each other, the contact sometimes inhibits the page fold, sometimes even creating a kind of blip or bulge in the pages. So I line everything up, but then separate the pages ever so slightly before taping so there is a better “hinge” between the pages. I usually put three pieces (maybe 3cm long) on top, bottom, and middle. Then flip the pages over and try to tape over exactly where the other tape is so as to cover over any exposed sticky stuff due to the pages being separated slightly. Sounds complex but it’s easier to do than to explain :-0. It make a nice foldable / store-able package.

Great video. Thank you Simon. I’ve beed doing basically the same, but never thought of the booklet approach. Wonderful.
I also make each sheet narrower by cutting the vertical margins and leaving just barely 1/4 inch next to the score. That way I have almost nothing but music on the pages and the whole score is as short as possible.

Great video Simon! I use the same technique but never thought of taping the booklet! Thank you! One tip that helps me and may help others: I bend up the bottom corner of each page in the booklet area, for easy page flipping.
