I may have put this in the wrong place as I suppose this question could relate to all collections not just thematics if I have I apologise.
When collecting a thematic issue it is considered 'Bad practice' to mix mint and used sets in the same issue or is it a matter of choice.
ie. The 1935 Silver jubilee - I have several sets which are used but I also have some sets that are mint should I mount the whole lot in one set of album leaves and mix the two types to try and complete the whole issue or should they never be mixed and therefore I should use two sets of album leaves thus doubling the size of the number of pages used to achieve the same result.

There is no such thing as good or bad practice, it is absolutely your own choice as to how you choose to collect.

I thought that this would be the case but just wanted to get it 'right' if you know what I mean.
I will probably go for the single mixed collection first and then split the collected stamps as the collection grows etc.
As I will mount all of the stamps both mint and used it shouldn't damage the stamps the way a hinged collection would.

Yes Paul, when it comes to stamp collecting, anything goes... whatever encourages anyone to collect stamps is fine by me! Let no Stamp Snob discourage you! (Not that we have any of those in this forum... it's one of the reasons I love it!)
In fact, I found out a friend of mine is now collecting stamps, and one day, I suggested to her that one of her thematic interests might be to collect stamps with her favourite colour of hot pink in them! I thought of that as I was cataloguing a 2p beautiful hot-pink-coloured Machin.
As for me, one thematic collection I intend to pursue is how I came to be living in Kingston, Ontario for the last 22 years, through stamps (i.e. my military husband was posted here <insert appropriate military stamp>; for a while I worked for the Royal Military College of Canada <insert Canadian RMC commemorative stamp> blah blah blah
