What size books do the covers fit?
Currently available are a mass market paperback size and a trade paperback size. Mass markets are the small paperbacks, the covers fit a cover height of 6 7/8 inches by 10 inches length (17.5 cm by 25.4 cm). Trade paperbacks are the larger paperbacks and they come in a wider variety of sizes. The trade size will fit a book cover height of 8 1/2 inches by 12 length (21.6 cm by 30.48 cm). We encourage you to measure your book to see if it will fit. Both small and large sizes adjust to fit varying thicknesses of books.
