Yes, it is true. For more than 20 years, Country Bumpkin has been producing their highly acclaimed series of A-Z books. With 18 titles now available, A-Z of Knitting is the first one to be made available in paperback. The book has the same dimensions (9" x 8.5"), has the same cover picture, the same number of pages, and the inside is identical to that of the hardcover.
What is different, is that it is a paperback without the spiral binding used in the hardcover editions and the price is almost half the cost of the hardcover edition - $18.
