OK, Sorry to continue to bore people with the differences between Australian and UK editions, but my copy of the trade FoA arrived today, and I could swear that the paper quality is much better than the one I looked at in the bookstore here. So I am now going to have to swing by the store again to examine the paper to see of their is in fact a distinct export edition printed on lower quality paper (like the 1st of the Pocket Hobbit that we got out here before the UK, which was printed on recycled toilet paper).

Yes, I have too much time on my hands...


Turns out that I probably imagined the poor paper quality on the copy I looked at in the bookshop . I went to a different bookshop today and the copies they had were identical to the one I got from BD. Maybe the original bookshop just had bad lighting or possibly I was in an especially critical / bad mood...
