This video by Works That Work makes an amusing job of explaining the differences between saddle stitch and perfect binding, even if over-exaggerating the difficulties of reading perfect-bound magazines.

And so say all sensible magazine publishers. Well done, Works That Work.

I agree with them but choosing a perfect bound mag with heavy card inserts was a bit of a cheat.

There is very little over-exaggeration. The perfect-bound book was designed by myself 10 years ago, and bound by a fine binder. It has sewn sections, correct grain direction, creases, all things that should help to open better. The cover uses 280g paper, while WTW magazine uses now 250g paper. Inside stocks are almost the same too.

Meh. I fail to see the point of this video.
Misses some of the more important points of saddle vs perfect:
* what is the pagination? Each has it’s own benefits.
* saddle creep – how much outside margin are you losing in a thick saddle stitch?
