Publishing Textures: Illusions

EXE File

          Publishing Texture packs contains a background page texture and a stylized text block associated with the background. These files are in .PNG format and come in a range of sizes and are there to help you make your publications look good. For one low price, you can use these textures over and over again so long as you remember to attribute Haven Press in your art credits.

          A plain background texture, the texture with the text block and just the text block come in both 8.5 x 11 and 8.75 x 11.25. The two size formats are intended for digital and print publication. The plain background and the background with text block also come in playing card size for publishers that want to make their own card games.

          When you download the texture pack, you’ll find an .EXE that brings your attention to a read me file and a list of textures. Just click on each and they’ll be copied to your desktop. It’s just that easy.

Our artistic products are also available in print through RedBubble

The provided material looks good and especially the cover is great for a product with a dark theme to it (i.e. horror or dark fantasy). The images itself are rather “large”, due to their quality, which leads to a download format that is a bit awkwa [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
