Separate Illustration Section

Separate Illustration sections are regularly used in books such as biographies. An illustration stock (115gsm matt or gloss)is used in 8 or 16pp configurations to print photographs in mono or colour and to distinguish the illustration section from the text stock, the illustration sections are inserted into the text during the binding process. Should you wish to have multiple illustrations sections then please make a note in Step 8 of the form such as 2 x 8pp illustration sections required.
