This book is so interesting! It is incredible. I would not be afraid to add another signature or group of sigs, to plump it up, or to add wily-nily signature wrappers inside and little pockets etc. I know you have some pockets and maybe you could not let it scare you - add edges, whether with colour or tear the edges of those pockets or add gold foil bits. One of your masterpieces!!!
