Re: Stars of Magic photo quality

I understand that they still have the original footage filmed at the time using 4K HD cameras.

Apparently they have spent the last few decades trying to degrade the video quality to match the poor quality of the photographs in the reprinted edition.

Re: Slipcases and Books

I have a number of books

I guess I could ask a bookbinder to make me a few custom made ones however I'm guessing it would be prohibitively expensive.
