Forgive my ignorance, but I can't seem to figure out a good way to do this.
I'd like to scan my copies of the shoujo manga Angelique that I picked up in Japan several years ago, but I don't want to chop them up or destroy them. Is there any good way to do this? I only have a flatbed scanner at the moment. :S I've scanned a few old images of Twin Signal (again, roughly a million years ago) by smushing the volumes down into the scanner, but it naturally didn't turn out too well.

Any ideas would be highly appreciated.
