Venice: Churches

Venice: Churches


Caterina de Padua, Venice’s famed thief the Midnight Rose watched the Campo de San Marti from her perch atop a small church, Santa Maria de whatever–the name wasn’t important. What was important was the larger basilica style church visible beyond the campo.  La chiese de Santa Marina di Laguna.  She was waiting for her mentor and handler, Father Vittorio to light their special signal lamp.  Then she would descend from this church’s low roof and deliver the pouch of incriminating letters she had “borrowed” from a wealthy merchant.  Tomorrow night, while she luxuriated in her bath, said merchant would receive a visit from the Signori della Notte, Venice’s infamous secret police and judges.

Venice: Churches has two basic versions: steep and low roof, two color schemes (brick and white stone), and can be built with or without the side aisles, giving you eight versions.  The basic church has a four by nine inch footprint, while the version with side aisles is nine by nine.  It’s an easy to build model and can be made collapsible simply by leaving bottom and roof unglued.

Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh your Venice: Churches, 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.
