I guess it's my former consultant's cap that comes back! ;-)
I hate to search a solution to a question that has already be 'oriented';
and when you take a couple of steps back, and see the whole problem, you
could find imagine something so more creative and simple...

I create both photo-books and e-books on the same machine with Scribus and
Sigil respectively, so I've no need for an archive for that. I usually
begin to work with rather small thumbnails as dummies to do the layout; and
when I'm sure of the final size for each picture, I do a proper job of
resizing/converting to png/jpg or whatever.
But every step, it's only a matter to export from Digikam's collection to
files in the computer system files.
