Advice sought re: Fold out page

Postby Hector Pascal » Sun Jul 14, 2019 2:21 am

Hi all,

I'm preparing an instrumental part with a fold out page:

Page 1 (with number hidden) of the part is blank (just the title and composer etc) due to page turn reasons;
When you turn over page 1, you see page 2 and 3 with a fold-out page 4 to finish the movement.
Then there is time to close the fold-out page 4 back into closed position. The back of page 4 is blank and I've called it page 5.
When you turn page 5 over to commence new movement, you see page 6-7 normal two page spread.

Having said all of that, with the fold-out page to the right of page three, should its page number be right aligned? Page 2 and 3 is left and right aligned, respectively. Page 5 is right aligned. Page 6 and 7 is left and right aligned, respectively, as normal.

Cheers,
Hector.

Unusual situation, but I guess I would put page 4 on the right since it's the outside of the page .

Another option I guess would be pages 3a and 3b.

Hi again, motet.

OK, so... If I use 3a for the fold-out page (I like that idea), is it sensible to number the back of it 3b?

Edit: forget the above sentence, I now comprehend your reply. I need some sleep!

To explain: When the performer is finished playing 3a (end of movement), they'd fold it closed, they will then see 3b (the back of 3a) laying on the right side which is blank for page turn reasons, and then they turn 3b over and play 4-5 as normal for the new movement. This will maintain the traditional connection between odd/even numbers and R/L alignment, which I guess was what you were considering when you mentioned 3a... (EDIT: and 3b).

Cheers,
Hector. zzzzzzzzzzzz
