Collating racks.

To collate is to partake in the ancient fannish dance form in which piles of pages for a fanzine, apa or other publication are stacked on a table and fans shuffle slowly in circles around the table taking one from each pile to form a complete issue which is then bound together.

Some enlightened faneds or apae, especially those with large page counts, may use a collating rack to save steps, but these are rare.

The event at which collating occurs is called a collation.
