Take a look at my "Sherlock Holmes Omnibus"; a number of the stories in that contain illustrations.

I think that you'll find those illustrations to be a perfectly acceptable size in my Mobi version.
I'm not talking about books we or someone else generates. I'm talking about books that are purchased with DRM. I'll show you a few images in one of Winston Churchill's first WWII book to show you how bad they really are.
