In addition to the standard sizes described above, paperback and hardback books also have a range of less commonly used sizes. If you don’t know what size your book should be, we recommend choosing a standard Letter or Digest size.

If you have a certain book or booklet size you want to replicate (like a Penguin paperback) and you’re not sure about the dimensions, please read our guide on measuring.
