#12 - Things I Learned When Self-Publishing My Picture Book with Amazon's KDP – Size Options
Both of my books were printed by an independent publisher size 9” x 10” landscape, but KDP doesn’t print books that size. Their books are printed portrait or square. Although KDP offers a good selection of sizes, I had to adjust my picture books so they could be printed on demand through KDP. Rather than have the book illustrated again, I placed a colorful border along the top and bottom of each page spread to make the rectangle books square. The artwork was already very colorful, so I chose a coordinating color from each page, and alternated the same four colors throughout the book.
Look inside and see what I'm talking about: “We Love the Company: A Story About Table Manners.”
