Hefty sum to put down and not have a preview of what is inside. Unless you are familiar with Mr. Gillespie's work it would be difficult to persuade someone to purchase this product.

As the product description says: "This "special collection" is intended for distribution to Kickstarter backers." It's not meant for the regular public to buy, just for the KS backers with the special link crediting them for their backer level (hence the artificially-high price as a deterrent to the rest, so the backers get it first). Easy enough to track down the KS campaign for further details; then wait for the products to be released at a later time, at a real price point.

In order to make a Kickstarter-product available to its backers, a publisher has two choices. One, make multiple product releases, including one early one, invisible except to those with the special link i.e. the backers. Unfortunately this means that all the backers sales, ratings, & reviews will also be invisible to the general purchasing public, making it much more difficult to promote it beyond the backers. OR Two, make a release at an artificially-inflated price so that the release is visible, but...See more

Really looking forward to this when it's "general release". Barrowmaze is superb.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! Gave it a quick read thru and I am very impressed. Mr. Gillespie has once again bottled lightning. A wealth of material that should keep a group busy for awhile. Stunning art AGAIN!

If you where a fan of Barrowmaze (If you wren't 'Do You Even Role Play"?) then this is a no brainier, GET IT!

Thx Greg -- Can't Wait To Run This Campaign!

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.
