The only study I've seen suggests ...

** Another consideration is whether either the text or the graphics happens
to be much more important than the other. Since your book presumably
is bound on the left (unlike books in such more sensible languages as
Hebrew) the right-hand page is more prominent to the reader who is
flipping into the book. If, for example, the graphics are mostly
self-explanatory and the text is for the few dolts who can't understand
the graphics, then it'd be nice to tuck the text out of the way on the
left-hand page. If the graphics are daunting and can't easily be
understood without a prior look at the text, then the opposite format
would be friendlier.

And I do apologise if you received an unintentionally posted fragment
of this response.
