Why is the revised edition about 50 pages shorter than the original printing? (If I haven't got it all totally wrong...)

Otherwise, thanks for the re-print!

Is it smaller? I've not seen it. I don't work on the bookazine department so I'm unsure why there are differences to the revised edtion.

The old one is about 250 pages (according to the Imagineshop) and the revised edition about 190 pages, so it's a bit weird. But I'm happy for the new version anyway, as I don't have the older one :)

Seems bloody odd. I'm about to chase up my Hardware Vol 2 as it still aint here, I'm wondering whether imagine are using a new post system as various issues and books are taking longer and longer. But as for if it is less pages in the revised edition, I have no way of comparing unless I post it and see what others say. Seems strange to have a revised edition shorter, except for economic reasons of course as it's the same price to purchase.
But still stoked to be able to finally get the Bookazine I was after :)

***Update: Just a heads up that even if you are preordering a bookazine, you will receive two emails...one for the order confirmation, another sometime later stating it has been shipped, even though it hasn't. So I ordered on the 23rd, got an email at that time, then an email on the 28th saying it had been shipped. This is automated. Although I wasn't expecting until June I just assumed it had been printed earlier and was on the way. Not the end of the world obviously, but a bit annoying. Just though I'd let others know in case they've received the same shipped email and are expecting something in the post anytime possibly not printed yet :)
