I have a narrative non-fiction at 60k words and would like to use a 6 by 9in layout however the last 50 pages transition into diagrams for a scientific theory based off of the narrative. Because of this, 7 by 10in would hold the sketches and diagrams better. So my dilemma is that I am going to go with 7 by 10in but can’t quite find the right margins for the first 200 pages that contain the narrative non-fiction. Im either with margins that are small but have 400 words per page or margins to big giving the feel of to much negative space. I am stubborn so I want to figure this out.
