Book Design and Imaging

Cover production for the hard cover book

On my recent test book the only thing that was a little off kilter was the cover. You still use the blurb template for the cover and as this is a photo documentary type of book, having an idea of bleeds etc is critical. With the cover however, in which two full bleed images are used (front and back covers) and this particularly an issue on the front cover, the image from the cover bleeds around the fold to the inside of the book.

I understand that this happens and why, but it seems as if the template that blurb offers could give one a better idea that this will be happening.

Any thoughts on how to overcome this issue for the future?
