Two Scoops of Django 1.6 India Edition Sneak Peek

Posted by Daniel Greenfeld on April 03, 2014.

We finally have a finalized proof of the forthcoming Two Scoops of Django 1.6 India Edition in our hands!

The US edition, on the left, is 7.5x9.25 inches. The India edition, on the right, is sized A4, which is about 8.3x11.7 inches. The US edition is slightly thicker, but not dramatically so. The cover of the India Edition has more vibrant color (admittedly slightly rumpled thanks to the clumsy hands of the male co-author). The SD memory card and garlic clove are for scale.

Printing: Our Indian printer,, has outdone themselves. We have extremely high standards and proudly say it's a BETTER printing than the US edition. The paper feels good in the hand. The slightly increased margins make it easier to annotate. In fact, it's such an amazing book we're planning on making it available world-wide. It's just that good. We appreciate's service and attention to detail, and hope to use them for other future projects.

Content: Besides the addition of 'India Edition' in the footer, the content is identical to the US edition.

Pricing: Our pricing reflects the India Edition's international distribution. While it's actually more expensive to produce than our US edition, we're going to cut our margins and charge $5.00 less than the US edition per copy. That puts the pricing at US$39.95, or about 2403 Indian Rupees.

Release Date: The book will be tentatively released on Tuesday, April 8th, 2014. It will be made available on,, and potentially other Indian online book markets.
