Interior Book Pages with Indesign CS6

The page is 5.25×8 inches, a common paperback size in the US. The fonts used are Rosarivo 11 point OTF with 13 point leading and Cinzel in 18 points. The styles shown are chapter number with rule, chapter title, first paragraph with a dropped cap, and normal or body paragraph. Optical alignment is turned-on and a nonjoiner character was placed between the drop cap and first line to permit kerning the space between the C and A. The first line was set in all caps.


Same page layout with EB Garamond TT 12 point on 14 point leading in place of Rosarivo.
