Beware: unbelievably it is now published as a paperback
on 14 March 2013
I have been buying the Michelin red guide to France from time to time since the 1970s, and have just received the 2013 edition. I realise that I should have spotted this when I ordered it, but I am amazed to find that the guide is now a paperback. This is totally unsatisfactory, not least because the book will not open flat; also, the very thin paper used (to which I have no objection per se) needs the support of a hardcover, and I don't see the paperback surviving a year of kicking about in the back of the car. If a book is published in such an impractical form, the value of the contents is greatly reduced.
I shall have to find an alternative guide with a satisfactory binding for future years, and I suspect I shall not be alone.
