new font size, new ISBN?

I have interesting returns from the readers I sent a copy of some excerpt booklets (e.g. Mrs. Hazel Twittle) drawn from my sitcom (Spiffies and Loonies). They all agree that these are pleasant read because the font (Times New Roman) size is 14pts, while in the full book the size is 12pts.
I now intend to use 14pts in the full book. Necessarily it will have more pages. 
Because of this change and its consequences, shall I need a new ISBN?

    Not sure about such a slight change in size. But if you make it 16 point Garamond, it will be about the same as 14 point Times Roman and then call it Large Print Edition. Many people want large print nowadays. If you do this, yes it would require a new ISBN.

    To me Times New Roman 14pts is large print. I might try first both TNR 14th and Garamond 16pts as two different private projects, then delete the one I like less. Yes, I think it wiser to require a new ISBN for the retained version turned public. Thanks a lot.

    I have changed my mind. The book is not globally distributed yet, therefore there was no need to apply for another ISBN.

    To legitimately be called large print I think it has to be 16 point, but look it up to be sure.

    Yes, you are right, Maggie. I have opted for 14pts, without mentioning "large print".
