Additional notes: the Cover is one solid wrap around piece. Original measurement: 6.25" x 12" which was cut down during the final tweaking of the book.
The Signatures are 6" tall by 8.5" wide folded in half to make 6" x 4.25" pages.
The spine measurement is 1.25" which is a little too much space for this book.
