Publishing an illustrated book - Nick Gibbs - 21 Jun 2019 10:04 AM

Is it possible to upload a fully designed and laid out PDF to KDP to be used as an illustrated eBook and/or paperback, entirely produced by oneself, similar to a Dorling Kindersley book?

My children's books are all illustrated. I think I uploaded most of them as Word documents. It's easy enough to download the previewer and keep making changes until you are satisfied (or KDP is satisfied Rolleyes Wink Some of them were originally trad published and were OCR'd from the printed version before uploading.

Can you put more than one image per page?

Yes, I would think so. You just have to make sure they are within the borders of the page. I had to do them a couple of times to get it right. I'm not very clued up about the intricacies, so maybe someone who is more tech proficient can help.
