Why doesn't my cover fit my book.

I'm trying to do a wrap around cover. I have uploaded my pdf and all looks fine but when I download it to check, the front cover appears to be larger than the back. Then on the review section where you see the three small pictures of the cover - front, back and spine - the spine is wider and has taken part of the front cover?  I have checked all measurements and they are correct. Spine is the right width for the pages.

Spine 1.459 cm, Overall cover 31.72 x 21.622 cm, spine begins at 15.13 cm

Am I missing something basic?


  • If you haven't already, I suggest reaching out to our support team. They can examine the project and cover more closely and hopefully explain why the file is being distorted.
  • Are your left and right sides both 15.13cms? The info re the spine can be misleading, and does not clearly state that the width given also corresponds to the size of each side, not including the spine.
