There are more formats than A4 <g>. In fact, the A series is set up that if
you fold it in half, you get the next smaller size.

So, if you want to be international (which is a good idea anyway), you
might think to go to the A5 format.

However, the ideal page size for printing and bookmaking does more depend
on the sheet size the printer can handle, and then, how can you place 16
pages on that sheet.

Hope, this can help.
