Hi Mary-

Most  binderys will bind  smalll and large together in a way which is
not unruly -  I suggest you consider that.

If you don't, you can bind a sheet within the volumes which has
directional information; you can have a box made for the small and large
volume, which would keep them together.  You don't know what the
publisher is going to do in the future, size-wise, so by setting a
precendent of binding like sizes together, you may be putting yourself
in a position of incurring extra costs.   I'd look into how the
publisher binds the year you are planning to bind now- they may be
binding small and large formats together.
