It’s time for templates again! This month we have another nifty book template (6 × 9 trim size) from BookDesignTemplates.com. This one’s called Flourish, and it, you’ll find all the page types and styles you’ll need to get a book project off the ground.

The download package includes one template in InDesign CC 2014 and IDML formats. The IDML version can be opened with InDesign CS4 and later. There are also fonts (with Open Font licenses), a placeholder image, and an ornamental graphic to add a little flourish. (Not a Premium member? Sign up here.)

Note that this template is offered with a special Design License from BookDesignTemplates.com, which entitles you to use the template for one project. If you wish to use it for additional projects, you must purchase an upgraded license. See http://www.bookdesigntemplates.com/license for details.

  1. Book Design Templates might also want to create one with a landscape photo beneath the chapter title. Good landscape photos are far easier to find than portrait ones. You can see what that looks like here:

    Where there’s a page break for a new chapter, placing a photo just after the title has a major advantage for digital books. It ensures there is no awkward page break when the picture appears in reflowable text. I usually make mine 4-inches wide, which works fine for a 6×9-inch book and fits well on tablets too. InDesign makes it easy to switch between B&W tiff files for print and color jpgs for digital. Just put the two in separate folders with identical names except for the suffix. I usually make the filename start with the chapter where it appears to make finding easy.

    Any chance premium membership might come with access to InDesign-only tutorials at Lynda.com? Their full package is marvelous, but I simply don’t have the time to benefit from it. I have to focus on ID only. Both IDS and Lynda would benefit.

  2. Michael, thanks for the tips about images in ebooks. Getting access to InDesign-only vids on lynda.com as a premium here is definitely something we’ve thought about, but they’re not really set up that way. We’ll continue to investigate great benefits for our premium members, though. Email us at info@indesignsecrets.com with more suggestions!
