When publishing a novel or chapbook, there is a general standard size one can use.
What if you want to be original, artistic, or if the information is extensive? Would a coffee table book be appropriate?
Publishing is a course in research and development. Marketing skills application. College post exam. Artistic expressionist experiment.
Publishing is also trying to be modern and stylistic while being traditional and simplistic. Cannot confuse people. Cannot be boring either.
That is why we publish in the 6X9 inch range. Small but not too small. Large but not too large. The publication has enough room for great cover art as well as white space needed to make books not feel cramped.
How do you like your publications?
Have a really weird day!
