Title: Project Arcade print quality
Post by: Singapura on April 24, 2008, 08:20:35 pm
I've used Saints book for quite some time now but always had to borrow it from the library. A few months back I ordered a copy for myself and last week I finally had a chance to get it from the bookshop. To my dismay, the paper and print quality of this copy is much less then the one I had from the library. The pages seem thinner and on some the print is barely legible. Is there a second, lesser quality print or is it just me?  :dunno

I'm not aware of any second runs or lesser quality editions. I'd guess, but do not know for certain, that you ended up with a bad copy. I'd ask if they can send you a replacement?

I will, but the problem is that the local bookstore has to order it in the US which took them long enough the first time.

Maybe it's a 'bootleg'?  I know while in college, some of the students would order 'bootleg' textbooks from India...  they'd be different, soft cover instead of hard, and lacking all copyright information.

I don't think so, I ordered it at acmamall which is the local version of amazon.
