I can't really articulate why, or indeed quite figure out why, but I really like that double column printing. I don't read Galician but obviously know the text very well and found it very appealing.

Indeed, it’s a very elegant book. It’s bound in cloth (the first one I own with this binding, it’s so soft!). I forgot to include a picture of the spine, so I do it now. Let me know if you want more pictures. This edition does not include the appendices.

I bought it from amazon.es for 48 euro + shipping, here’s the link to the publisher’s site.

Interesting! I bought the leather-bound version of the Galician translation from 2018 when it came out - see this short thread for the announcement.

It appears that both the leather and the cloth editions have the same ISBN - 978-84-16884-17-9

Can you confirm your clothbound one has this ISBN?

I paid €51 (plus shipping) for my copy in early 2018.

It is indeed the same ISBN. It's weird because the actual item that appears on amazon.es is the leather bound edition with the previous cover design, but what I actually received was the cloth bound with the new design. I'm not complaining .

P.S.: I just noticed my previous picture was really oversized, I apologize. Is there a way to fix it? Trotter edit made it smaller

Looking forward to reading these two! I learnt of their existence quite recently, so I attach links with more info on each in case someone is interested:

The are typical examples. Mysterious and quite abstract. Perfect for new readers.

I like those illustrations a lot.
