Portrait Book

Portrait books are perfect for stories for older children because they can accommodate more text and still have exciting illustrations. Our portrait books come in two “flavors”, hardcover and paperback, and A5 and A4 sizes.

Landscape Book

Landscape books are great for full-page illustrations. You can still have quite a lot of text but this format makes the pictures stand out. The landscape books can be printed as hardcovers, layflats or paperbacks, in A5 and A4 sizes.

Square Hardcover Book

Square picture books are ideal for toddlers and children between 3 and 5 years old. They are a great transition from board books. Our square books come as standard and layflat hardcovers in two sizes.
