Spine Width Calculator


Self Publish Australia's Spine Width Calculator Tool will calculate the spine width of your next book based on how many pages your book will be and choice of paper weight & book format. This is very useful if you will be designing the book cover yourself - you will need to add this to the document size: back cover + spine width + front cover (see diagram).

Your page count assumes print-ready final layout - if your manuscript is yet to be laid out in book format, choose your book style here, and calculate approximately the amount of pages your book will be using our word-to-page calculator.
