Carroll, Lewis: Through the Looking-Glass (Illus.) PDF (9x12cm) v3 11 Dec 2012
"Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There" is the sequel to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", and is likewise a humoristic nonsense story for children of all ages, written by Lewis Carroll (pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) and first published in 1871. In this book Alice meets Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the White and Red Queens, Humpty Dumpty, and the White Knight. This version is illustrated with all the original 50 drawings by John Tenniel.
Also available the first story: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
I created the PDF from the Project Gutenberg text, with pdflatex. The book is nicely formatted and typeset, with table of contents, etc. It's also proofread. It has minimal margins, and 9pt font size ("-ss" stands for small screen), it may be too small for some people, but the source files are available on request if someone wants to try different settings.
I also added a "chapterbar" to the top of every page. It has two bars marking the progress on the whole book and on the current chapter, which I hope are unobtrusive and helpful enough.
Any kind of feedback is welcome.
EDIT (v2): Fixed a typo in the title page.
EDIT (v3): Fixed a couple of indentation problems.

Looks great on my system here at work!
Looking forward to trying it out on my Sony --- the one issue I noticed is it looks like an annotation bookmark in the upper right-hand corner would blot out the chapter number if one bookmarked a verso --- not sure if it's worth bother 'bout or no though.
