Book gutter size for large page count?
« on: May 20, 2019, 04:57:10 am »
I understand that the inside gutter must be increased when binding a large number of pages. In my case my book is around 300 pages long. Is there a guideline someplace to let me know what gutter size is apropriate? I am going with KDP paperback format if that helps anyone. Thank you in advance!

hi flyingvranch

just take a look at the paperbacks you own. some of mine use less than 15 mm – but i would give a bit more…
