As I mentioned here on my blog last week, I had Blurb print the same book for me as a soft cover and as a hard cover and while I loved the hard cover, I wasn’t so excited about the soft cover. I thought the only difference between the two books would be the quality of the covers. But actually, the print quality of every page of the hard cover was better than that of the soft cover. I had a friend ask me more about the quality difference so I went and scanned one of the same pages from each:

Admittedly, this photo didn’t have the best lighting to begin with, you can tell that the soft cover provided a lot less color depth.
