Setting up a spread ? - Adobe Indesign Windows

Hi, I am NEW to InDesign and am confused as to how I should set up my pages. I am creating a 20 page catalog in full color and the background color will be a gradation created in Illustrator with the mesh tool. It transfers beautifully into InDesign, BUT do I need a separate gradation for (for instance) pages 9 & 10 or can it be one full gradation spreading over both pages? When the printer seps it out, will it automatically sep the gradation background in half to match the page it will print with??? PLEASE HELP!! :/...

    A 20 page catalog is more than likely going to be saddle (wire) stitched. In order to keep a smooth look of the gradient, I would place the entire image over the two pages. This assures you will not have any faint lines in the gutter.

    For printing yourself. Just make sure you keep spreads together turned on in the print menu.

    Thanks Kenneth! Yes it will be saddle stitched. I was really unsure how the printer splits the pages to print them. Thanks for your input! :)
