(a post in which we compare apples and . . . other apples that don’t have a matte finish. There’s a difference, we swear)

Sometimes the Scholastic Book Clubs pick up copies of our books for their book clubs and publish their own editions for them (after we sign some kind of licensing contract with them, of course).  This is generally awesome, as it means that our books get out to more kids!

This post highlights the changes between an edition of Adventures in Cartooning: Christmas Special that First Second published, and the one from Scholastic.  With pictures!


The inside front cover.

The Indicia — the publication information that’s listed in the book.  Notice especially the fonts!

And close up. . . .

Here’s a look at the inside back covers.

And the book spines.

And here’s a spinal close-up.

How many differences did YOU find?

    Both look great but I am partial to the cool font you use on the inside back covers.
