I am slowly crafting/coding an eBook with a width of 768px and a height of 1024px. I took this measurement from the Apple specs and recently discovered that these happen to be the default IPAD measurements in Adobe Illustrator. So far so good... However, I recently downloaded a noteworthy and inspiring fixed layout eBook and, upon doing an inspection (it has no DRM), I found that its pages are measured at 1224 x 1632. What is a good guide when choosing these measurements? What are the criteria for choosing one or the other? I am testing with an IPAD mini (a wonderful little critter) and I am beginning to wonder what would happen if I saw my book in a regular-sized IPAD (probably nothing, I guess… but just wondering). What are the 'safe' dimensions to design with?

Your expertise in this matter would be appreciated…
