Dear John and Virginia:
I'm interested in Christopher Moore's "Sacre Bleu". The description says "hardcover with half jacket" - can you explain what a half jacket is? Didn't find that term in any german dictionary. What's the difference to a regular dust jacket?
Cheers,
Constance

Sacre Bleu MooreHi Constance - Take a look a the image to the left or click this link to go to our product page for Sacre Bleu.

The dark blue is literally the jacket and it only covers one half of the boards of the book. The board has the special design on it, so it's a nice "art" piece.
