With A Question of Honor: A Guidebook to Knights, we offered an insight of knighthood into the depths of many gaming tables. With this book, we intend to do the same, however we wish to expand and present the vision of knighthood to e-publishers, gamers, and gamemasters looking to spruce up their home-brewed campaign website.

In Alea Publishing Group Studio Companion: Volume I, we accomplish this with a collection of fifty (that's 10 cents a piece!) black & white as well as color images. Each are copyright free and can be used without stipulations, legal hassle, or even the mention of us as your image provider.

In a slow growing .pdf industry we need to build consumer confidence and to do that we need to make sure that they have spent their hard-earned money on a product that they will enjoy. As a publisher of game related e-books, Alea Publishing Group understands the need for inexpensive, great art and although we have artists on staff, using these images and others like them frees them of heavy burdens of producing all of the art as well as adding a variety to a book.

For those of us who simply enjoy art, we can marvel once again at these great illustrators and take on another level of fantasy from these works. We have designed this product not only to be a tool for publishers but pleasing to the eye as well so that those of us who admire the talent of these great illustrators can peruse with pleasure.

Why a revision? First and foremost, from the feedback we recieved from our customers, a revision was an important step. What can be found in the revision: the same great art as before save that each black and white image is a 300 dpi .tiff file. The color images are 300 dpi .jpeg files. These images are provided seperately from the .pdf as well as inside the .pdf. In additions to the enhanced quality of the graphics the product is hyperlinked and booked mark for convienence. We understand we cannot please everyone, but it does not hurt to try. So enjoy!

Nice selection of primarily copyirhgt-expired/pre-copyright open domain art which has previously served to illustrate the Arthurian tales. Not specifically sure of their origin, but the range is very nice, and will work well if you want to evoke a sens [...]

The art herein is perfect for adding a 'Ye Olde' feel. It is in two seperate styles, about half the images for each. The first set includes a fair number of color illustrations that may or may not work well with the b&w, depending on how you feel [...]

As is clearly stated, these images are public domain. Thus, theoretically, one could go out and download these themselves. That said, however, time is money and if a $5 purchase can save me hours of searching, all the better! Half of the art is OUTSTAN [...]

This thing is chock full of really incredible art. It's all public domain, and any fan of Arthurian fiction and art is going to spot it right away, but the beauty is, you can do anything you want with it. Change it enough and you can even copyright it. [...]

This is a good collection of public domain artwork from artists Arthur A. Dixon and George Wooliscroft and Louis Rhead. The revision includes all image files as individual tif or jpg files, and a brief explanation of what you can do with the images (a [...]

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.
