What sort of book is this that has 1500 images?
I've got one textbook that seems to have every table and code fragment embedded as a JPEG. 1960 of the suckers! It has some genuine diagrams in there too. The book's only 80MB though, tiny compared to Karen's
The PDF version of it is just over 8MB...
I don't know if it is common to render code fragments as images or not. It is one way to avoid line wrapping problems I suppose.
The textbook in question is DTrace - Dynamic Tracing in Oracle Solaris, Mac OS X, and FreeBSD. The epub is quite readable on my Sony PRS-T1 despite the size.
