Venice: Back Alleys

Venice: Back Alleys


It was a poorer quarter of Venice, but the roofs still held as Caterina da Padua leapt from flat to sloped roof, almost stumbling.  The pursuing Lords of the Night began to fall behind as they were less willing to slip and fall into one of the small canals.  She grinned as she heard a scream and a splash.  Now, it was time to plan her revenge on whoever had slipped her name into one of the many Lion’s Mouths that were spread across the city.  

Venice: Back Alleys is NOT the Venice of merchants princes or romantic gondoliers.  Its building represent the slums of the Serene Republic.  Don’t think of double-dealing Doges or romantic gondoliers.  Instead, smell the stench of backwater canals, dodge the bodies left by thugs or disease.

The 4x6x6" buildings come in five color schemes with appliques of windows, doors, and storefronts with two different style roofs.  They collapse for easier storage.  Also included is a wooden bridge, a well head, canals, and ground.

Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh your Venice: Back Alleys, a new one waits your summons from hard drive and printer.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
