To print an issue using the printing format you
should proceed as follows:
Having downloaded the appropriate PDF file, click on the printer icon in
the PDF Reader to start printing.
Using A4 paper (not Quarto), print PDF page 1 only. This will print Bikwil
pages 12 and 1, side by side.
Turn over the printed page and print PDF page 2 only. This
pages 2 and 11, which will appear in order on
the back of pages 12 and 1.
On a fresh sheet print PDF page 3 only. This will print
10 and 3.
Turn over the page just printed and print PDF page 4 only.
This consists of Bikwil pages 4 and 9, which will appear in order
on the back of pages 10 and 3.
Repeat Steps 3 and 4, one PDF page at a time, until all pages are printed.
You may now fold the pages down the middle into a booklet of correctly
arranged A5 pages. If you have a long-reach stapler, you can fasten
them together before folding.
It is important that you orient each sheet properly when turning it over
to print on its back. Turn it end-over-end, rather than side-over-side.
The example given above is for Issues 1 and 2, which are 12 pages
long, but the same principle applies for larger issues. In their case, of
course, the page
numbering will vary. So for a 16-page issue Bikwil pages 16 and
1 will print side by side first, then on the back of pages 16/1 you'll have pages 2/15, and so
on. Similarly, for the special Wagner issue (Issue 10) it goes 72/1 on the
front, 2/71 on the back of that, etc.

Note: Issues 1-9 (May 1997 - September 1998) print
entirely in black-and-white. From Issue 10 (November 1998) onwards the
printing is intended to be partly in colour, but will look OK in
