Text and images are set in one, two or three column grids. The texts are left aligned with a ragged edge. The predetermined grids are applied to one of the predetermined book formats (H, P or L) on pre-selected paper and with predefined text modules. Autobooks are printed softcover books.

The relationship between text modules and content is not predefined. Text and image are handled equally, void of restrictions. How they are distributed across the pages and the resulting pace, sequence and layout should be decided based on content and free from conventions.
