2 versions:

Standard paper edition: I don’t know what kind of paper this is, but as a rough comparison, it’s similar in tone and weight to a Mohawk Via Vellum Ivory 70# text I have here in the shop. It is slightly more yellow in tone than Mohawk’s Cream. The textblock is 5/8″ thick, weighing just over 3 pounds.

Deluxe edition printed on Valley Forge Parchment, 65 pound Old Natural cover stock: At 1″ thick, this is a much heavier weight and a significantly thicker textblock than the standard paper edition, weighing just over 5 pounds.
