The Scavenger's Tale

Watermarked PDF

After the fall of civilisation as we know it, families of scavengers scour the wasteland for remnants of the past. 

This is one of their stories.

The Scavenger's Tale is the first picture book set in the world of "Walkabout", a post-apocalyptic Australian setting where life is hard, things are rarely what they seem, and echoes of the past linger to make life even more difficult.

The various books in this series will tell an interconnected tale, each a self contained story but building a larger picture of a wider world.

If there is enough interest in this project, a physical copy of the book will be made available in the near future.

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.
