I agree. As always, I have an idea of what it SHOULD look like :) Maybe I will fire up the drawing package after I have sorted some thorny database queries this afternoon (having to use SQL Server, and I can't say I like it after 20 years of Oracle and PostgreSQL)

Yeah, Pocket size. I had a semi-informed inkling that these would use the 1st Edition jacket styles.

I'd jave preferred a full-size edition with those jackets, but this is one I will pick up, I think (despite my feelings about the pocket format).

Agree that the box is much too fussy. I think something primarily white, rather than primarily black would work a lot better.

Edit: Speedhyhen has the picture of the back of the box also

Agreed. Books look nice, slipcase not so much. Are these "pocket" size?
