Many readers will know that my Supplement V: CARCOSA book is very similar in appearance to the OD&D booklets: 5.5" by 8.5" with a cardstock cover. If you open the book to the center pages (i. e., so you can see the staples on the inside), you'll see the 8.5" by 11" hex map printed on those pages.
I'm planning to once again (MONTHS from now) offer printed copies of CARCOSA for sale, instead of only PDFs as is now the case. This will be in conjunction with the release, in both print and PDF, of a new D&D book I'm working on. (This new book is unrelated to Carcosa. I'm striving to make it even better than CARCOSA.)
I'm contemplating one (and only one) possible change to the CARCOSA booklet:
Instead of printing the map on the center pages of the booklet, I'm thinking of having a detached cover and printing the map on the inside of the covers. In this respect it's like the old TSR modules.
What say you?

I say keep it the way it is. Booklets like that are easy to get dog-eared, and if the cover is detachable, it's more likely that one could lose it or leave the book unprotected. That, and it might cost more to do right.
Can we get a teaser on what that next book will be or have?
Believe it or not, I've been subtly talking about it on dragonsfoot for quite awhile. I'll be more explicit in the near future. In the meantime, I have a small note on my blog: carcosa-geoffrey.blogspot.com/
I like Carcosa the way it is; it's a supplement, and matches the other supplements. Plus I like that I can detach the map and use it however I want; if it was printed on the inside of the cover, I'd feel like I needed to keep it with the book, since it's the cover and all.
Also I'm definitely looking forward to this new offering!
