There are 32 sheets, or leaves left, which is 66 pages. There are NINE artists left, which would be 3 1/2 sheets per person or seven pages.
However, the previous artists have used an average of 5 sheets per person or 10 pages.
If we each continued at that rate, following the pattern established in the book, the seventh artist would not have enough and the 8th and 9th artist would have NONE.
These are the alternatives, as I see it:
- each of the remaining artist use 3 1/2 sheets only (a max of 7 pages, not ten)
- OR add a fold -out page or two to your 3.5 sheets (leaves) or 7 pages.
- Or We could continue as started and Anders could send a new book to the 8th person in his rotation.
- Hennie suggests in comment below: use the back sides left by others. Anders, what would you prefer?
Here is how I figure the 5 per person: 4 of your own and two 1/2 collaboratives make 5. It works out exactly if you count the pages. 5 pages done on one side = ten pages (5 sheets).
Please let me know how to proceed. Thank you very much. Mary :-D
