It is hard cover, whether you get the limited edition. There are 345 pages which are pretty close to A4 size. The pages feel slightly glossy to touch.
Content is what matters. It includes the usual foreword, acknowledgements and introduction. Then there is the really useful material – the Interpretation of the Standards for judges, breeders and exhibitors; Nomenclature of domestic poultry including the recognisable diagram; then the Australian Poultry Standards for 39 Softfeather fowls and bantams, 11 Hardfeather fowl, 23 Watefowl, 9 Geese, Guinea fowl, Turkeys and Eggs. In most cases these are extended beyond edition one and there are lots of pictures throughout the publication. At the back there is a glossary which includes details like comb types, faults and specialised vocabulary.
