Brasyl trade paperback design, with photos

I finally got some pictures uploaded of the Brasyl trade paperback design. I have to share them because the book looks so cool.


The cover is that silver stuff that goes all rainbowy when you look at it at an angle (that's the technical Physics explanation). Notice Richard Morgan swearing on the front.



Underneath the front cover is an inner cover with cool artwork. Notice the cutout letters in the front cover.



The back is pretty too.




Yep, suspected as much. Massively better than the hardback. Wonder why they put so much effort into the cheaper edition? A deliberate effort to boost reader numbers, or an assumption that it wasn't worth providing hardback collectors with a particularly nice book-owning experience? Think I'll drop 'em a line and ask...

That is lovely.
