Lang, Andrew: Adventures Among Books, v1, 24 March 2008.

From the web:

“Scottish historian, translator, journalist, lecturer, biographer, anthropologist, poet, and author. An avid folklorist, Lang's Fairy Book series contain dozens of fairy tales, myths, fables, legends, and nursery rhymes.”

___________________________________

Please note that this title was first made available by Bookbinder.

My version is only slightly different: I used an HTML file from Gutenberg, and gave the text a little more “breathing” space on the margins, but not as much as on the previous noir titles I’ve been making available here for the past two weeks. This is the main difference between our two versions.

Like Bookbinder, I used the “verse” option to change any verse text (based upon the HTML file as a guide). Finally, I used “annotation” to signify the few breaks in the text from any normal text.

I’m experimenting with NOT using bold on normal text.

I hope you enjoy this. It took most of the day to put together. Please also see Bookbinder’s version as a comparison to my version.

I hope you enjoy this.

Bolded text as the main reading text just doesn't look good nor give a good reading experience.

I agree with you on this. Unfortunately, many of my earlier books are in bold; that is, the regular "Paragraph" text was denoted as "Bold." On those earlier books, I basically wanted a thicker line of text with which to read, but I've since taken a different stance on this.

Oppinions differ, as you realize, and some contributors here use the "Bold" designation as one of choice.
