Big Floppy Book
The Big Floppy Book or BFB refers to the Far Future Enterprises reprint collections of Classic Traveller. The original digest size books were scanned and printed as two digest pages on a single page. Combined with the softcover, this makes the books both larger than normal books and floppy, hence the name.
