Egmont: Book dimensions?

#1 · Posted: 27 Nov 2015 01:14
Hi, I am adding to my collection of hard cover Tintin books. My current copies are all Egmont and measure 224mm x 304mm. I am looking at new Egmont books on the UK site Book Depository, and their listed dimensions are 224mm x 294mm, which is 10mm less in height than my current ones.
Is this a typo on their behalf? I want my books to match on the shelf.

Hmmm... bit of a mystery there.
For one thing, my Egmont titles in hardback are 226mm x 302mm by my reckoning, so already not the same as yours.
However, I do notice that the internal page height is 294mm, so that may have been what was transcribed here?

Confusingly, the Egmont website catalogue reckons the books are 225mm x 297mm in hardback, so I'm none the wiser - perhaps we all need new tape measures and rulers?
