Thankfully there are people in this world who are obsessed with preservation. They go into dusty corners of libraries that people have forgotten about and they scan books that few copies exist of in the world. Then it is uploaded to a server where people promptly forget about them. Sure, there is search but how do you search for something that you don’t know exists?
What we want to do is find cool old typography related books and tell you about them.
But that’s not all. Reading a scanned book kinda sucks. It’s almost disrespectful to the original medium. What we decided to do is convert the scanned book into an ePub ebook that can be read on a wide variety of devices.
