In the land of fakes how can you tell it’s real?

With only a few days away until classes begin in the Philippines, it’s interesting that there are even bootlegged school supplies. School supplies!

Even pirates wont even spare the greatest Philippine novel ever written.

One is fake and the other is the authorized print of the Department of Education.
The sad thing about it, as far as I know the book is in the public domain. So why is there a need to “pirate” it.
Well the original is in Spanish so I believe the Filipino translations are held by copyright. But in this day and age, the fake costs P150.00 and the real one costs P300.00. The price alone could make a parent think twice about which book to buy their kid for school.

More pictures of the fake and real. Comment on which one you think is fake or real. I’ll post the answer after school starts.

Book 1

Book 2

Which one is fake and which one is real? You decide.
