As I have said several times LSI publishes books with color
interiors and books with B/W interiors. The COVER of the book
with the B/W interior can be either PDF X/1-a:2001 format or a

form of pdf.
Books with color interiors and destined for LSI have a different

format. Both cover and interior shuld be PDF X/1-a:2001. Also the
bleed margins are different.
