Hi HarryT, I wanted to share the following feedback on images in case it is of help: Gutenberg makes available a significantly higher resolution image of the one that begins in front of A Princess of Mars (Dejah Thoris)--maybe others as well. Also, in iBooks the classic pulp book cover images are not centered and scaled (half show on another page) and likewise are also low resolution. The centering/scaling issue is one you have solved in the past as the Pride and Prejudice ePub doesn't have that problem.
Thanks!
Thanks for pointing that out. I'll incorporate the higher-resolution images into the next release.

I'm not sure why the images aren't centred in iBooks if the P&P images are. Presumably a consequence of the way that I create ePubs (convert using Calibre) and whatever Jon subsequently did to it? Jon?

I'm looking into the code to see if I can see if anything it funky.

It's always good to have a choice, but it would be useful to know what the changes were that you made to the ePub that stopped the images being centred in iBooks. Any thoughts on what it may have been?

I didn't make any changes in the code to stop the images from being centered. But I think I've found the problem. I have it on my iPad in iBooks and it's now centered just fine.

One of the styles applied to the cover image is...

Code:
.calibre6 {
    height: auto;
    vertical-align: baseline;
    width: auto
}
I've edited it to remove the vertical-align.

Code:
.calibre6 {
    height: auto;
    width: auto
}
It works fine with the latest iBooks on my iPad. Do you want me to upload a new version or are you OK with fixing the CSS?

Your welcome.

One thing I have started doing is trying to find higher resolution pulp covers since you'll eventually be putting in higher resolution images. I'll have to do some editing of them to reduce the sizes.

A grateful thank you.

I enjoyed reading a number of these books some 45 years ago. Thank you for taking the time and patience to make them available in this single large volume. I will get many hours of enjoyment reading them all this time.

I picked up a copy of it on DVD and thought it was pretty good. Alas it apparently didn't do so well at the box office so who knows if and/or when a sequel will be made.
