Did you try printing to a different printer? checking your ink/toner levels?

comment Prepress proofs?
Can you? Possibly. If it's your very first book, do you really want to skip proofing every page? Of a photography book? I wouldn't.

comment Open CS5 document in Indesign CS6 without converting
@Jongware I think it's just Illustrator which works the same way ID does. I'm pretty sure, but I won't bet the house on it, that PS is backwards- and forwards-compatible. Obviously if you're using more sophisticated filters or effects you might not be able to access it in an earlier version, but I think you can pretty much open and save in whatever version with abandon.

comment Working with minimal direction and no feedback from client
For next time, you need to have a creative brief with the client before proceeding. You insist on a meeting where you discuss what the client wants, and get a sense of likes and dislikes. I usually ask for three to five pieces that the person loves or hates and then ask why, so even if the client can't articulate art direction, I have some sense of what the person's aesthetic is.

comment Working with minimal direction and no feedback from client
A lot of good advice here. I like the spoon-feeding Yes/No approach, not allowing unlimited rounds of changes, and keeping client contact to one person rather than the whole team.

Experiment with several different letters. You can't base your decision on a dataset of 1.

comment How do I use Indesign Find/Change correctly?
Honestly, I would cheat. Replace all the commas with comma-space, and then do another S/R for double spaces. Very quick and no variables involved.

comment Want a tracing font for Montessori Work Sheets
couldn't you print it at 50% black? Also, if your students are still at the point where they're tracing, "thick" is a feature, not a bug.

comment How to turn off InDesign's smart text wrap auto-adjustments that minimise/mitigate breaking words? (make text wrap dumber)
@JanusBahsJacquet Your mileage may vary, obviously. I have spent the time tweaking the book and felt happier about it.

@user568458 I actively loathe Paragraph Composer. I'm the bloody typesetter here, InDesign; don't tell me how I want my paragraph to rag.
