There are problems with placing an EPS barcode in the file

2. Why should you make so many versions of the cover?

There are various uses, from printing to marketing

You need to send multiply files to the printer

it is good practice in learning the application

3. Why must a bleed area be added to the cover?

In case the colors bleed over
