Deciding on binding style

I think I am going to stitch my booklet as the contents needs to be viewed as double page spreads because the left page is a continuation of the right place, vice versa.

The other option is to saddle stitch (use two staples down the spine of the booklet) however if I do so, the entire spine is not bounded and that the page behind could be revealed (pattern of black/ white pages) which can disrupt the visual appearance of the booklet as a single sheet entity.

I chose not to have spiral bound (comb) because detail near edge of the page will be lost and with this particular booklet design there is detail near the edge of the page.

I chose not to have side stitch because detail near the centre of the double page spread will be lost and there would be a deep crease on the left side of the booklet for when the booklet is opened/ closed.
