Professional Book Design and Layout

The importance of a professional and consistent interior format cannot be overstated. Choosing to publish with aSys Publishing will ensure that your book has the best chance of success. A poorly formatted book, be that an electronic book or a physical one makes it more difficult to read and often will result in negative reviews.

  • In order to achieve the best possible results all our traditional books are designed using Adobe InDesign and the electronic books are coded by hand using raw HTML / CSS. Unlike some publishing companies we do not simply use Microsoft Word, which is not well suited to advanced book design.

  • The use of Microsoft Word to produce an eBook can and often does generate an eBook in which the reader is unable to change the font sizes or styles. This is a serious problem as an appealing feature of eBook readers is their ability to change the size and style of the font to suit the eyesight and preference of the reader.

We at aSys Publishing are able to format your book in any style you choose. If you are unsure, then we will format your first chapter and pass it to you for comment. Once you are happy with the style, we will format the entire book in the same style thus ensuring a professional and consistent book interior.

During the formatting procedure, which can take up to three weeks, we will send you frequent PDF files for you to review and comment on. Soft-proofing in this manner makes sure that you will be happy with the final formatted book.

Traditional Book Sizes (Trim Size)

The Print on Demand services has a wide selection of book sizes available by default. If you require a book size not stated here then please contact us. We should be able to accommodate using our Digital and Lithographic book printing services.

  • The following table is a list of the most common book sizes and page colours which are available on the Print on Demand Service

  • IMPORTANT: It is vital that you decided the book size before the formatting procedure is started. Any changes afterwards would be a substantial amount of work and would incur additional charges.
