Book Dimensions and Binding

In coming up for an idea for the size of the pages for my book i started off by trying to link to my concept, unfortuantlely sculptures can and do come in any size you want, so this proved a bit of dead end in that respect. However as a designer Eric Gill used a sketch book to design his work, i could use this idea for the base of the dimensions.

Another idea would be to play on the dates of Gill Sans.

Gill sans was first used in 1928, this would give me a dimension of 280 mm x190 mm, this gives a nice book shape and size, but a little big for my liking.

6″ 10″
