Stevenson, Robert Louis: Treasure Island (Illustrated).v1. 21 Aug 2012

Time for yet another edition of Treasure Island... The classic tale of the young boy Jim Hawkins' perilous quest for the fabled treasure of the pirate captain Flint.

I've used pdurrant's text, and added the illustrations by Louis Rhead. There are many excellent illustrated versions of this tale, but I think his is my favourite.

Given the use of different fonts and slightly daring layout, it may not show up properly in all readers, I'm interested in feedback if there are problems.

Now that is a seriously good book you've made.

I like what you did with getting the text to display over the image, it's the sort of thing I've been trying to figure out for one of my books. I might need to borrow a bit of your code for myself.

Absolutely brilliant formatting, thanks!

I have the world's smallest nitpick; the ludovico font doesn't seem to contain hyphens, search for "Over on the back the same hand had written this further information" and look at "Spy-glass" in the letter underneath. You surely don't need instructions, but to me it looks best to add
Code:
span.ludohyphen {
  font-family: "AquilineTwo";
  font-weight: normal;
  font-style: normal;
}
to CSS and of course replace hyphens in the relevant divs with "<span class="ludohyphen">-</span>".

This case is a trivial s/r, but I have a related question: If i find errors in an epub, do uploaders accept a corrected epub, or do you prefer a list of errata (so you don't have to depend on the ability of random strangers to edit epubs)? I couldn't find comments on this in the guidelines. For me personally it might be easier to just make the changes than to compile a list of errata.

I can't speak for others, but I prefer a list of changes, so I can modify my source files and propagate to other versions. But I'm also OK with a modified ePub if the changes are only the corrections needed, so I can easily find them with a diff (i.e., no other changes in markup, file naming, structure...)

Regarding the missing hyphen, I'd recommend modifying the font with FontForge (if the license allows embedding in ePub, it probably also allows modification, but it might require a name change). It shouldn't be too hard to add a passable hyphen.

Thank you for pointing that out, antropophageous anatidae...

Regarding corrections, I share Jellby's opinion. As long as the changes are easy to find, I have no problem with an altered epub file.

Regarding the dash, I think I'll just use another font for it. But I'm wondering if specifying AquilineTwo as a fallback font might do the trick? Now I'm the one picking nits, but I feel it is best to handle such an issue in the stylesheet if possible.

I did a couple of trials with fallback in different viewers:

ADE (Sony PRS-650), iBooks and Bluefire seems to honour them, Aldiko just ignores the whole font, Calibre and Sigil don't use fallback glyphs and displays the dreaded rectangle. I agree that the span trick is messy, but it might be a bit more robust. Your call

The first couple of chapters look great on a Kobo1.

@ SBT --- Beautifully done, sir.
Now for a good wallow in nostalgia, I haven't read this for decades.

Thank you.
