Broken Templates
Book Design and Imaging

For those who are not aware, Blurb’s own templates have errors in them for the templates that almost full pages. Once you add a border, the border falls within the pink area. I asked for help and they simply told me to edit the layout, which they should have done before they released this version. Plus how can you edit the layout when the pink area is not there to see how much to edit

Two pages full bleed spread
Tips and Tricks

I am trying to do the same thing. I have an 80 page hard cover book and trying to create a two page spread. Have not printed it yet but this is what I am trying. I cut the photo not in half but each half is 52% of original and placed each section on facing pages. I am hoping that the 2% overlap helps compensate for what is lost but have no idea. Any help would be appreciated

Looking for editing advice
Tips and Tricks

Looking for some advice. I am creating a compilaton book of things I have written over the past 20 years. As would happen, styles change in spellings (labor vs labour, Web vs web). Two schools of thought here. One, change things so consistent spellings and styles throughout or, Two, leave it as it was written to show not only content but how styles themselves changed
