Seven reasons why authors should publish Large Print editions

Fact. Large print books are gaining hugely in popularity. But what exactly is a Large Print edition? The truth is, there is much more to a Large Print book than just a regular paperback with larger-sized type.

A correctly formatted Large Print book is a thing of beauty and a pleasure to hold in your hands and read. Every element in a properly formatted Large Print edition is considered. This includes chapter titles, page numbering, headers and footers. There are fewer words on each line, and not as many lines on a page. However, the outside margins may be narrower than a regular book, while the central gutter may be wider to accommodate a greater number of pages.

Ant Press produces beautiful ebooks, paperbacks, and now offers authors Large Print options, too. If you are choosing to self-publish, we can do all the formatting and hand you the finished files to upload to KDP.

“Having had my first book published by a major NYC, I didn’t know what to expect when working with Victoria Twead and Ant Press. What a revelation! She responds quickly, kindly, patiently, and accurately, and she’s a whiz at promotion and marketing. I’ll be writing at least two more books, and I’ll definitely use Ant Press again and again.”
