Speculation Specialist Wizard
I can safely admit that I have absolutely no idea. My unfounded hope is that the price would be comparable. To my mind, hardcovers are just more expensive to produce. I have zero evidence other than hardcover books are more expensive than their trade paperback counterparts. That could just be their size difference, I honestly do not know.I did appreciate the slipcover format for Spelljammer, and a box set may have fit that even better (with a mite higher pace count)...but how much more might that have cost?
