I've received the first proof copy of the IngramSpark printing. Comparing it to the CreateSpace printing:
- It is virtually impossible to tell that the two books are printed by two separate printers. The quality is the same.
- The bindings are almost the same: CreateSpace's glue is translucent, IngramSpark's glue is white. Bothe are very good.
- IngramSpark's paper is thinner (eyeballing: about 15-20% thinner); so it is more see through.
More importantly, I can say that my first experimentation with the format change has failed: When the margins are too narrow, the book looks very amateurish. I am going back to more comfortable formatting.
