No, they just changed the color twice. I have no Idea why.
The first edition Covers are Blue with a marble like texture
and white Letters. The Second edition was plain white with
blue Lettersx, all while later issues where blue (on 'bumpy'
cardboard paper) with white letters. AFAIK all later blue
ones belong to the Commodore age.
