This is a review of the hardcover print-on-demand copy of Spelljammer: Adventures in Space (2e).
All in all I am satisfied. The binding is in line with other POD hardcovers I have purchased. It will do the job and stand up to a moderate amount of abuse. The book is not so thick that I'm concerned about the integrity of the binding. The cover is clearly a print of an image, and while the image has no blur or pixellation, it does have a barely visible border around it. The image on the spine is also not perfectly aligned, leaving a thin white strip on the spine that should be part of the back cover. However, I was pleased that it does have the title and logo on the spine. It looks good on my bookshelf, small issues aside.
In terms of contents, others have noted that the two books from the box set appear in reverse order. Concordance of Arcane Space ought to be read first. I don't consider this a critical error, especially if you are already familiar with the product from its previous box set incarnation. I won't say any more about that.
The print quality is fine. It is obviously a print of a PDF, but this is made clear in the product description. The text is fuzzy from being enlarged, but not nearly so that I find reading difficult. The maps and ship tokens are reproduced, split across pages, and in good quality. If you want to use those, however, I would recommend getting the PDF as well just for convenience.
Again, I'm satisfied with this product. It met my expectations and it will make a great reference that allows my original box set to sit in comfortable retirement. My only hope is that other box sets will recieve print-on-demand hardcover versions (coughPlanescapecough).
