One of the common or confusing problems for the new book designer is to understand the cover wrap on a hardcover book. It is not a dust jacket. It is the printed paper or cloth that is glued to the boards.
Please read about the cover wrap to understand the extra background margin we need is the cover wrap is printed paper. Confused? We can explain it!
Remember, when the interior text pages are complete and the page count and the paper thickness is decided, we will provide a template of measurements. You, or your designer, will have the measurements needed in order to finalize the files.
