* What, one might ask, is the format “à l’italienne”? Well, here you go:

In printing, an Italian format designates a book format in the width direction. It is the equivalent of landscape mode in digital. The Italian-style format was popularized in Italy by the publication of fumetti, comics in a small format in the 1950s and 1960s. In contrast, the French format designates a book format in the direction of height.
