There may be a page missing or repeated. I do check the Word files against the images, but getting images into Word is an error-prone process and Word will occasionally do odd things like transposing two images. Sometimes the printer may miss an image entirely when printing and I may not catch it. If you find an unexpected blank page, contact me and I'll send you a replacement page. If you find two pages firmly stuck together, don't pry them apart! They will be blank on the other sides--the printer will have grabbed two pages at once and I didn't notice till I'd bound the book.

I generally slightly edit the images to brighten them and increase contrast, as some are dark and a bit grey-ish, and enhancing them makes details easier to see. If there are flyleaves with scribbled library notes or stamps, I will have left them out. The aim is to provide a book that feels as though you just got it from the workshop, or from its first or second careful owner.

You cannot rely on these books for precise measurements of page size and margin widths, as I may have increased the outer margins a little to avoid trimming bits off the images when the page edges are ploughed straight. Nor for exact colour values, though they will be close. The laser printer, for example, tends to enhance reds and yellows, no matter how hard I beat it with sticks. The page size will be close to the original, unless, for example, it is an A5 turned to an A6 or vice-versa. The original size is clearly shown in the descriptions below, and you will receive a paper copy of the dimensions and description with the book.

You can rely on relative measurements within the images themselves; I do not alter the composition of the images at all (with the exception of the borders in the Book of Hours That Never Quite Was, but this is a composite book, not a reproduction of any one extant manuscript). You can rely on the major colours -- red is always red, not orange or pink, for example. It may be a little brighter than the original, but that's it.
