Poetry Book Template

Seeking the area for poetry book formats/themes.

Here are the features I love about a format/theme I used for my first poetry book.

* It is 8.5 x 8.5 square and hardback.
* It has auto-generating Table of Contents from the layout pages.
* Some of the layout pages also serve as an auto-generating divider for sections/chapters.
* It has several layout pages that have big text block areas, perfect for a poem to fit in.
* It has awesome illustrations already on each page (yay lulu artists!)
* Some of the layout pages also allow for adding your own photo or two.

In fact, all the way around, it is a super awesome format/style and was perfect.

I want to make another one using the same format, but with different illustrations this time, using a different theme.

I thought I had created this one from the area for Photos Books & Calendars, but I don't see it there, or anything like it. All the themes I see there now have pages that are almost entirely photos, with a small spot for captions on a few pages, but nothing like this theme I have been using, that allows for big spaces for text blocks, with auto-generating TOC and section-break layout pages. 

Could you please help me find where the poetry-friendly templates are now?



  • I'm not certain, but this may have been our specific poetry based template from some years ago (5+). If so, it's a template we no longer support.

    I think I recall that, too. Lulu also had other very specific options such as Magazine, but quite a few were discontinued, along with the ability to upload contents for CDs, DVDs and art, and even software. All I can suggest is you create your own template in Word to match the other options in Create.

    I too made a poetry book here. I loved that template. A pity it's no longer on Lulu.
