Photos and other special items:

Don’t overlook your photo layout when determining margins and what fits on a page. The photograph counts as the edge of the margin, just as headers, footers, text, and other graphics do. As we prepare digital manuscripts, it is easy to forget this as so many of our special items lay “over” or “under” the page that we have set margins for. Unless you are paying for a full bleed, laying items outside your set margin area can lead to books that have inadequate printing in the margins, broken spines as things run into the stitched binding, and unforeseen edge trims as the book block is trimmed to prepare for binding.
