[Tex/LaTex] What are LaTeX templates for A5 booklets


I am trying to produce a A5 size booklet. You might have seen these old small A5 size math books, with large size text in every page. They are very comfortable on the eyes to read and handy to hold.

I am using documentclass book. If I use a5paper, the produced PDF is still A4 size with the text being produced in top-left corner of A5 size. Also, the text is pretty small compared to the large font seen in booklets.

Are there LaTeX templates or packages I can use to easily produce this kind of A5 booklet? LaTeX newbie here 🙂

I usually use the geometry package, with a5paper option (and like 7pt font size). The use of a5 size is an excellent idea!
