    Cool portrait book


    I need to find the right printing term to say: "a vertically or horizontally printed book".

    What about:

    -a vertically or horizontally printed book

    -a portrait or landscape book

    -a portrait or landscape orientated book

    Can you help me, please?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Re: portrait book

    Will, I use the words portrait and landscape daily in my job, but I don't know how well those terms are understood in the general public.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
