It depends on the book, but thickness of prints pasted (it's called
tipping in) can add significantly to the thickness of the total book.
Page spacers can equalize this discrepancy out, but I don't like the
look. But, if I were doing, say more than ten images, I'd work on a
design where the pages were comprised of actual prints. You'd need to
keep this fact in mind as you printed. Also, bindings are an artform in themselves.
