Cookbooks may benefit from the Triangle Book format more than any other book genre. Why? Have you ever tried to cook in your kitchen while looking at a cookbook? Maybe you could not keep the pages open due to a tight spine. And maybe the book was difficult to read while lying on the kitchen counter. But you didn’t want to touch it with food on your hands.
Every year in the U.S., ten percent of all book revenue comes from cookbooks. If bookstore managers put a propped Triangle Book cookbook on top of a stack of such books in their store, it will draw customer attention.
