G8 or G9?

The book has a dj (Illustrated by Rockwell Kent). It's
brown but I'm not really sure if it's considered
paper-covered. If I had to give it a name, I'd call it
fake leatherboard. It does have the G8 blind stamped
logo of the torchbearer. The Guide shows G8 and G9
with separate logos, but states that endpapers can be
individualized. Does that help?  I'm going to call
this one a G9 unless I hear otherwise. Thanks, folks.
