Can you add to what's already been said about it, Pawse?

 

ooh, the actual text has been reproduced in some books (e.g Peter Haining's books, all twelve hundred and three of them) but it's so funny the actual miniature is going to get its own wee-print! :D

 

Don't you mean "wee-pwint"?  ;)

The Amazon listings fooled me too at first, till I noticed the same photo on the publisher's site.  Apparently when they say "original format," they mean the size rather than the cover -- though that might be just a dust jacket?

It's hard to tell whether the photo is supposed to be the book itself, or a dust jacket, or packaging.  But the Amazon descriptions both say the book is "cloth-bound," and the only review to date on Amazon UK says, "It comes in a lovely gold-stamped cloth-bound package, with an attractive and informative booklet."
