## Dimensions Of A Series Paper Sizes

A Paper Sizes - Quick Lookup

## Size Unit Dimensions

A4 in mm is 210 x 297

The dimensions of the A series paper sizes, as defined by the ISO 216 standard, are given in the table below the diagram in both
millimetres and inches (cm measurements can be obtained by dividing mm value by 10). The A Series paper size chart, below
left, gives a visual representation of how the sizes relate to each other - for example A5 is half of A4 size paper and A2 is half of
A1 size paper.

## A10 26 x 37 mm 1.0 x 1.5 in

To obtain paper sizes in centimetres, convert mm values to cm by dividing by 10 and in feet by dividing inch values by 12. More
units here and sizes in pixels here.

## 4A0 & 2A0 - The DIN 476 Oversize Formats

The paper sizes bigger than A0, 4A0 & 2A0, aren't formally defined by ISO 216 but are commonly used for oversized paper. The
origin of these formats is in the German DIN 476 standard, that was the original base document from which ISO 216 was
derived. 2A0 is sometimes described as A00, however this naming convention is not used for 4A0.

## A Series Paper Size Tolerances

ISO 216 specifies tolerances for the production of A series paper sizes as follows:

## 1.5 mm (0.06 in) for dimensions up to 150 mm (5.9 in)

2 mm (0.08 in) for lengths in the range 150 to 600 mm (5.9 to 23.6 in)
3 mm (0.12 in) for any dimension above 600 mm (23.6 in)

## A Series Paper Sizes Defined

The A series paper sizes are defined in ISO 216 by the following requirements:

## The length divided by the width is 1.4142

The A0 size has an area of 1 square metre.
Each subsequent size A(n) is defined as A(n-1) cut in half parallel to its shorter sides.
The standard length and width of each size is rounded to the nearest millimetre.

Note: For reference the last item is there because the root 2 aspect ratio doesn't always give a whole number.

International Usage

The A series paper sizes are now in common use throughout the world apart from in the US, Canada and parts of Mexico. The A4
size has become the standard business letter size in English speaking countries such as Australia, New Zealand and the UK, that
formerly used British Imperial sizes. In Europe the A paper sizes were adopted as the formal standard in the mid 20th century
and from there they spread across the globe.

## RA & SRA Untrimmed Sizes

12/11/2017 A Paper Sizes - A0, A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, A9, A10
RA & SRA sizes define untrimmed paper for commercial printing. These formats are designed to allow for ink bleed during the
printing process so that the paper can then be trimmed to one of the A series sizes. Click here for more on RA & SRA sizes.

## A3+ (Super A3)

A3 Plus, or Super A3 as it is sometimes known, is not an ISO 216 paper size. It has dimensions of 329mm x 483mm (13" x 19").
This gives it an aspect ratio of 1:1.468 rather than the 1:root 2 aspect ratio of the ISO series paper sizes. In actuality the
A3+/Super A3 name is quite misleading as this paper size is known as B+ or Super B in the United States and is ANSI B with a 1"
margin for print bleed.

Text specifications
Size, spacing and justification
As a general rule of thumb, a font size of 9 to 11 point is a good reading size (depending on font choice) for the body
text of the common A5 trimmed book. A larger sized book may need a larger font and increased line spacing. A page of
body text looks tidy if left-justified. However, depending on the document, other paragraph options such as 'left- aligned'
(as on this page) are quite appropriate. The line spacing (or leading) should be at least 1.2 single line spacing (if laying the
text up in a Microsoft Word document). A better overall appearance for the main body of your text could be obtained in
Microsoft Word if you make your line spacing approximately 2pt larger than your font size. For example, if your text size
is Helvetica 10pt regular, try making the line spacing 12-12.5pt. If you are working in Microsoft Word you can change
your line spacing by going into: format > paragraph and choosing Exactly instead of Single and then in the box to
the right of it, select the appropriate pt size. Only by applying a font (in different sizes one at a time) to a page of text,
and trying several different line spacings (also one at a time) and printing these trials out in order to compare their visual
appearance, and then perhaps the same thing again with a different font, will you begin to get a real idea of what your
pages may look like. When you try different fonts, take into account whether youre doing a small amount of text or a
whole book and also the context of the book. Different subjects may suit a certain font better than others.

Fonts
A serif font such as Times New Roman with a 10pt size is a good standard font to use as it is easy to read and pleasant
on the eye. Sans serif fonts can also be used for body text, Arial or Helvetica are two such fonts. The page numbers
should be in the same font as the main text in the book and be no larger than the body text. Often the page numbers
are a point or two smaller than the body text so they do not detract from the body text of the book and they are often
centred at the bottom of the page.

Chapter
The chapter headings of a book can be in the same font as that used for the main body text. But for visual interest
a complementary font would suit. The chapter headings are often in a larger font size than the body text, and can
be bolded so they stand out. There should be a space of at least 3 lines or extra point spacing after the chapter title
before the body text starts and the chapter title should, in general be placed one quarter to one third down the page
to differentiate clearly between the start and finish of chapters. A larger drop cap can be added to the first letter of the
first paragraph to add visual interest and emphasise the start of the new chapter text.

## Index only necessary for non-fiction

An index is usually set in two columns, with a space between the two columns. For example, a 114mm wide text block
will have two columns each 55mm wide with a 4mm space between them. The font size is generally two sizes smaller
than the body of the work. For example if the body copy is set at 10-on-12-pt type and the extracts, bibliography and
appendixes in 9-on-11pt, the index will probably be set in 8-on-10pt. All runover lines are indented, i.e. to allow the
index headings to stand out. Text in an index is not justified on the right-hand margin; it is ragged right.

Footnote
A note at the bottom of a page is properly called a footnote. There is a lot to be read about the standard way in which
footnotes should be set up. You would be wise to look at how they are done in other books and perhaps refer to a
manual such as The Chicago Manual of Style. The font size is generally a lot smaller, e.g., if using a body text of 10pt
your footers may be set in 7.5 or 8-on-9pt. Keep footnotes to a minimum. If you have quite a few they may be set up
better as endnotes. See an example of page layout, index page and footnotes on the following pages.

Imprint page
The imprint page typically starts with a copyright statement and also contains information about where the book
is printed, its ISBN number etc. It may also contain information such as which edition the printed book may be,
previous printers or editions if any, and also the country the book was printed and bound in. Some imprint pages also
acknowledge the typesetting information and may even list the fonts used in the book. The imprint page is usually the
second page in the book as it is printed on the back of the title page.

## Book sizes and margins

On the following pages are some typical book sizes, showing their dimensions and how to set up page margins. A5
trimmed is a small paperback size and crown quarto is often used for history books or similar type works. A4 trimmed
is included because it is a size commonly recognised; it is often used by authors publishing genealogies, jubilee or
reunion books, student workbooks etc. It allows the author to have more text per page than a crown quarto and can
therefore be more economical for printing. Other sizes are also used by authors; as a guide we have included those
that are more economical to print.

On the following pages are some typical page layout specifications for an A5 trimmed book
(145 x 204mm finished size).

page, where images sit, text wraps around images, the
point size of the text, the font used and the look and
feel of the book you are trying to create. The shown
position of the page number is also a guide only. For
example you may want your page numbering in the top
right hand corner of the pages .

MARGIN
18mm 35mm

The page number is centered and placed 18mm up from the bottom edge of the page.

NB: These diagrams show the page set-up for a right-hand page. (The first page of a book is a right-hand page). Set up your page
margins as though for a right-hand page; the inner and outer margins (or left and right) may be different so take note of this.
5mm is lost from the inner margin when the book is bound along its spine edge. The next step is to get right and left pages,
which will be a mirror of each other if you have different inner and outer margins. If you are working in a Word document for
instance, while in the page set up you select mirror margins from the drop down menu for multiple margins.
In Adobe InDesign, you select facing pages.
