Include gatefold, centerfold, or enclosure for large format items

Many times an author may wish to include a large format map, photo, document, or other element that doesn't fit well into the chosen book format size. With an 8.5x11" book, depending on the item, a double page spread may provide a bit more space for these items. Sometimes the double page spread works and other times it still may not provide enough space to do the item justice. In addition to including it via QR code or in some other electronic format, consider including it large format. Depending on your budget, this can be a folded item loose inside the cover, placed in an enclosure, or bound directly into the spine.

Illustration of foldout cover (gatefold).The illustration on this page is of a gatefold (single fold) back cover. gatefolds can be placed throughout a book and may fold more than once. The standard difficulties with this is the wear on the paper creases and overall cost. While gatefolds may be included in both hard and soft cover books, paper types can be further economically restricting.

An archival sleeve may also be attached to the cover where you may place large format items. This is one way to bridge the gap between bound in and electronic large format items.
