All books, marked with a (B), or (L) in Spanish, should be ordered from Red Star. The pamphlets are meant to be printed by the readers themselves. They are set up in MS Word 1997-2003 format for printing in booklet form ("bookfold"), with no layout necessary, on 8 1/2" x 11" letter-size paper in landscape orientation, although they will appear on the screen as single-sided 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" pages (even in print preview). All the reader has to do is print the pamphlet, either using a two-sided printer or photocopied back to back. The covers are set up to print separately on one side in landscape orientation (preferably on a light color paper, such as beige, on 32 lb stock, better than card stock). The pamphlet should then be stapled in the middle (easiest with a saddle stapler available for use at many photocopy stores, or with a long-handled stapler).

If you wish to order copies of these pamphlets from Red Star, please send $1 each, except for those marked with a higher price, to the above address for photocopying costs. Shipping costs to U.S. included.
