Taller versions exist in this format to accommodate larger sized plates. Among others are Conrad's Lord Jim, Edmonds' Rome Haul (1st), Glasgow's Barren Ground (1st), James' Portrait of a Lady, Lewis' Arrowsmith, and Spinoza's Philosophy.

Barry Neavill points out that it was the pleasing format of Stone's Lust for Life and Dinesen's Seven Gothic Tales that, among other reasons, moved Modern Libary to go to the Style 8 format.
