...just received 2x of my travel guide books in print from Amazon, they look muuuuch better than I anticipated, quality is highest standard possible, they are rather small (15x23 cm), light-weight (only ~150 g each), fully colorful inside with maps and GPS coordinates, pages are robustly made and glued, the cover is made of water-repellent paper, books are flexible, you can bend them, nothing will happen... though, they are ideal to put them into your backpack and use them while you travel through wonderful Patagonia...
