You may also see paperback editions of books advertised as 'A format'. This means that the size of the book is 178mm x 110mm.


so...... A is the typical paperback, and B is the long format paperback? or is B the typical and A is a shorter format?

seriously i never measured my books :?

:shock: I think it's too big for an early Discworld novel.
Either the words will be huge or the book will be pretty thin :think:
