Portrait vs. landscape orientation of box covers for board games set in Italy
My first attempt at a geeklist: the box covers of board games set in Italy tend go from portrait to landscape orientation (or even vice versa) between different editions.Recommend
Seems that Alea prefers their covers to be portrait (nice for the bookshelves), while new edition/renditions of the art work tends to get landscaped. But it's not only Alea box artwork that gets flattened!
Is there are landscape-centric movement out there???! Is there some Machiavellian plan from publishers to set the cover art "free"? Or is it just nicer with more people on the front of the box?
Let me give some examples, feel free to add your own.
