Who ever said typesetting was easy?
I am struggling with the typesetting of one of our upcoming titles. There are so many ways to layout a recipe book and deciding on the right format is a bit of a nightmare. The margins aren’t working, some recipes fit the page so neatly, others have just one line that flows on to the next page and ends up looking ridiculous. ¶
The formatting has been one huge palaver in itself and you have to be fairly consistent with this in order for the books to translate coherently into ebooks. Aaarghh! ¶
In future I will admire and respect all cookbooks or even vaguely complicated non-fiction titles. ¶
You live and learn… ¶

I have a problem with cook books too – formatting the actual recipes! If anything has more than 5 ingredients then it’s usually a disaster!
