|07:26 pm - Book size thoughts?|
I'm preparing to completely re-vamp the DP Through the Wheel of the Year (or WotY, for short), and I'm thinking about changing the size of the book. I'll be keeping the wire-o binding, because I want to have it lay flat (there will be rituals in this edition) and make it easy to read.
But what I want to know from you guys: what size should the book be?
It's currently 7.5" x 9.25". I like that size, but I'm not sure.
For reference, Mallory's In Search of the IE's is 6.875" x 10", Hollander's Poetic Edda is 5.75" x 9", and most Penguin classics are 5" x 7.75"
So, to those who have a copy, what do you think of the current size? How does it travel, and how does it feel when you're working with it?

I like the current size. I think it's ideal for reading this sort of material. Also ideal for cookbooks.
I like it as is. As long as it will lay flat, though, I don't think it matters much.
I like the current size and have found no problem in transporting it around as it slips easily into a laptop bag or lays well with a notebook. I often find smaller but thicker books harder to hold.
... and its easier to find when the cat is laying on it.
I think the current size is good and I think you will find that rituals and other pieces flow better on facing pages without flipping pages as often. It seems like it should be workbook size to me...if you need artwork or anything for it let me know and I'll work something up
