Dear all,

Thanks for your advices. I will be meeting today with my publisher again,
and I'm carrying with me a host of PDFs with your suggestions.
In the end, I did as William suggested: export all the pages into EPS and
placed them in a INDD file.... let's wait to see what they say now.

Best wishes!
