The experience of posting periodically to this blog is changing my approach to the overall style of my book. So I decided to change its layout - just when I had already around 200 finished pages...

To begin with, I will move from two columns to just one. This will improve readability. I will also use a clean typeface. So far, I am working with "Century Gothic", without serif. I need to redefine all paragraph styles in the file...

The only problem I foresee is the rapid increase in pages number. I am trying not to produce more than 256 pages - beyond that, manufacturing costs are going up very fast...

I will also displace the main frame from the original layout. I will follow my own advice, which I posted for the creation of frames with GIMP, specifically when talking about golden ratio. In fact, this will not be a "pure" ratio, but just some displacement towards the interior and upper sides. Real golden ratio would produce too big margins...

I decided to publish through CreativeSpace, a child company from Amazon. It uses its distribution channels and its web for online selling. This should simplify handling and it should also improve my royalties - if I ever get to sell it.

The redesign in the layout will also allow me for the introduction of new features that have been included in the new 2.8 version of GIMP...
