PAGE STYLEPlease choose the style that is nearest to the style you wish to see in your book.
Artwork for every book we produce is individually designed, but for the purposes of working out the extent (number of pages) the pages in the samples PDF are designed to help you visualise different text settings for the main body text of your book. It should only be used for this purpose. The positions and contents of running heads and folios (page numbers) can be amended to suit your preference but have been left in here to help the visualisation. You should choose a style which best approximates to your design requirements with regard to how the text visually fills the page.
“11pt on 14pt” means the size of the text is 11 point and the leading (line spacing) is 14 point.
The character spacing is shown for either “5” or “0” which are our two preferred settings in the software (Quark Xpress) we use for page make-up.
This file will also let you see the effect of changing size, leading and typeface on how the text runs on.
Please note: (a) You should not worry about widows
(short lines that run over on to the next page) and orphans
(first line of paragraph on its own at the foot of the page) where they appear in the text in this file. These would normally be adjusted where ever possible in an actual book but have been left here otherwise it would confuse the effect of parameter changes in the text. (b) This file does not take into account the different page sizes available in the various settings. See the last page of the Styles PDF for a grid of the available page sizes.
The text on each double page spread has a different setting indicated in pale blue at the left hand side. If you are using our Online Page Count Calculator
the white number in the blue circle is the style reference used in this popup menu.
