(update: I might have some clue, as the book on iBooks support flipping of pages by: First see the left page, and then you can slide the page to the left and show the right page, so you can scroll the two pages as a "two page side by side" mode. Maybe this isn't available on the Kindle and so the publisher didn't want it on Kindle, because it defeats the beautiful design of the book. (try a sample of it on iBooks and you will see how it is like).

Your update is what I think too. Between page layout and illustrations, I don't think it would have looked good on kindle; it would basically have been like buying half the book. I appreciate the heads up on iBooks though. I prefer kindle, but I'd rather own the book digitally than have a hard copy (though I may just buy for my step brother in hardback, and read it before I give it to him).
