The backs are not the best possible backs imaginable, I think a plainer, older style pattern such as on the Jean Noblet or Soprafino would be superb, but the backs they chose are acceptable, particularly when compared with the tartan backs of the standard, and even the rose and lilies is ugly IMO, although clearly not to the same extent. Overall they got it right I think, the images are so much improved I can't believe it, I can tolerate the slightly more than I wanted lamination, the copyrights and the slightly odd backs as an acceptably small fly in a big jar of ointment. It has been very frustrating all these years wanting to have a nice RWS when none existed.
