Spot the difference


On an afternoon when I can't seem to settle down to any writing, I've been Googling instead. A wasteful and self indulgent pastime if ever there was one.

My meanderings have turned up two secondhand copies of a little book I did, back in the days when I was more into pop-up than writing. At first glance you'd think these copies were the same, but no. The one on the left is the English printing - note the spelling of the word 'colours' - and the one on the right is the US version. The one on the right is yours for £2.17. But the one on the left will cost you £128.95. I have no idea why this should be.

That's the kind of stuff you don't learn when you should be working.
