It is of course possible to lay out the the book with a wide page.
I have a nice book on my shelf "The Artist's Guide to Gimp
Effects" that has dimensions of roughly 10 x 8 inches. And my e-
book below is in two columns on a 11 x 8.5 in page layout. The
uses larger than normal type (14 pt) since it is intended for
on line reading as well as printing out.
"Create Book Covers with Scribus"
