Now that I can make a family newsletter, my next project will, of course, be a published book! .^_^.

A family member wants me to help her create a cookbook that she can sell from her farmstand at NYC metro-area farm markets (and local stores, online, etc). It doesn't need to be an award-winner, but does need to look good considering the upscale demographic of the customers. She will taking the photos herself of produce growing on her farm. The book will take the next year to produce as she follows the growing seasons and develops recipes (she's also a professional chef). 

 It seems that this kind of project is right up Scribus' alley. What resolution do list members recommend for the images? They will be of growing crops, people working and harvesting the crops, food preparation, and finished dishes. What book margins are used for such a project, whether glue bound or spiral?

Please remember that I am inexperienced with jargon and haven't worked as a graphic designer since before DTP came along. Thank you for your suggestions!
