Hard cover/Soft cover color comparison


I bought the Mouse Guard Box Set today and couldn’t help but notice a difference in color between the hard cover rules (I already own that version) and the new soft cover. In comparison, the colors in the hard cover seems darker and more vivid - the soft cover is lighter and feels almost a bit faded at times.

It’s still a very beautiful book, I’m just wondering if this is how it’s supposed to be or if there’s something wrong with my version?
