Margin Figures LaTeX

A small example of how to add figures to the margin using the 'marginfigure' define.
Also customize the page dimensions (so the margin figure isn't squashed too small).




\documentclass[12pt]{book}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usetikzlibrary{calc}
\usepackage{sidenotes} 
%\usepackage{mwe} % provides the example image

% modify the margins so that the marginfigure isn't too small
\usepackage[a4paper,
           left=24.8mm,
           top=27.4mm,
           headsep=2\baselineskip,
           textwidth=107mm,
           marginparsep=8.2mm,
           marginparwidth=49.4mm,
           textheight=49\baselineskip,
           headheight=\baselineskip]{geometry}


\parindent=0pt
