I just noticed than in the UK Bond 50, the individual child profiles are a mix of digibook and digipak. I'm a bit confused about the difference between the two, so I can't decide which is correct. If any.

I assume that the US release of Bond 50 looks the same, so if you have either, feel free to voice your opinion.

Differencer between digipak & book.....a digibook usually looks like.....a book and has pages in the middle of it.

If only we had some kind of pinned "Case types with Images"-thread. Oh wait, we have one. But all the images are gone...

If I had to choose between digipak and digibook, I'd probably go with the latter. But that's a distinction on which there's no real consensus anymore. To get that back somehow, we'd need a new thread explaining the difference in detail, wit lots of images of both types. And those aren't the only options: I see a lot of "Custom" being used for this, too.

For me, a digipak would more like a fold-out where a digibook opens up on a spine. I always think of music CDs when I think digipaks since they're more commonly used for that media.

Perhaps linking to some pics of it would help.

Without knowing for sure, just based upon my experience.

As far as I can determine.
A digipak is where the disc is held on a plastic hub that is glued to a paper backing.
A digibook is where the disc is held in the same case as a book about the film.

If this is just pages where the discs slide into slots on each page and each page just has pics/credit block of each film in the set I don't think it qualifies as a digibook.

I think custom would be more fitting.

But again, I'm going on what I think the set looks like. So pics would help.

That's a pretty accurate description.

You can see images here.

I'd go custom for this type of packaging myself.

It's neither a digipak or a digibook really.
