signature sequence pairs

Signature Sequence Pairs

Sometimes notes with different signatures are issued with the same prefix with consecutive
serial numbers. Pairs are seen most often, but trios and short runs of several pairs can be found. 

The signatures can be out of date sequence.  ie  Page  Fforde 

 
How does this happen. In the Fforde / Page instance, not enough Page signature blocks / slugs were   
available in time and printing commenced with a combination of both blocks / slugs.
