Book size, also known as “trim size,” refers to the dimensions of your book. Inword Publishers offers industry-standard book size, using popular sizes of each genre. Choosing the genre-appropriate print size will give you the professional look and feel that you seek. Some popular trim sizes are as follows:
➢ 5 x 8.5″ Small Digest
- Trade paperbacks and novels, poetry books.
➢ 6 x 9″ Standard Trade
- General nonfiction. If more room is needed than what 6 x 9″ offers, such as for sidebars, 7 x 10″ is a common choice.
➢ 7 x 10″ Large Trade
- General nonfiction.
➢ 5 x 11″ US Letter
- Textbooks, art and photography books, manuals, cookbooks, religious publications. This is good for 2-column text layouts.
