Am I the only one who doesn't like the Ecco books? (1 Viewer)

So, maybe I'm an old man yelling at clouds, but I really prefer the Black Sparrow books over the Eccos, even if they are the same. And, of course, I mean all the ones that Martin didn't ruin. I first read Buk about 25 years ago so all I could get was Black Sparrow and City Lights so maybe I just prefer them for nostalgia. That, and the covers feel better.

Anyway, just wondering if others feel like the Eccos are "fake" almost, I guess. Maybe I'm weird.
The paper quality and printing of the covers on the Black Sparrow Press editions is much better than that on the Ecco editions. The Ecco books look like cheap reproductions of the BSP books.
I fully agree on preferring the BSP editions, but I'm not the collector type so about half of my Buk poetry collection are Ecco reprints. That's temporary though as I've recently ordered the BSP editions of my Ecco books.
