| p.1 #12 · Magazine style albums vs. rigid pricier albums |

"rigid albums" - you mean "library bound"?
Just trying to clear up the confusion of terms, here.
The terms used here have mainly been in reference to the page thickness, not the binding.
By "magazine style," I'm pretty sure the OP is referring to standard, press-printed books, such as those offered by Blurb, MyPublisher, etc., and by some more sophisticated publishers. The term refers to the inside pages, which are more the thickness of standard coffee-table books.
The "rigid albums" again refers to the pages, not the bindings -- it's a reference to the 1/16"-or-thicker pages, such as flush-mount pages, which usually come along with higher quality bindings.
OP, correct me if I have that distinction wrong. The terms being thrown about in this thread are confusingly imprecise.
You are correct. There are so many different terms used it gets confusing.
