Hello. I purchased the pdf of this a while ago and recently started reviewing it to use in my campaign, and I wanted to borrow stats/spells for some of my homebrew creatures in just my campaign. However, There's only a couple pages I can highlight text from, and all the rest will not let me select it. I do not have this problem at all with Monsters of Feyland pdf.

I saw the video and this looks pretty interesting. Is the artwork available as separate files (in the downloadable version) that I could import into my VTT, to show my players?

No, however that's good idea. We do have some VTT products and we'll look at doing a conversion for our two monster books.

I have a full review coming soon, but wanted to say this is among the finest monster tomes I have ever enjoyed, for any game. Period. The characters are imaginative, and the artwork is charming-somehow managing to be whimsical but dark and menacing at the same time. Bottom line, this book is inspiring from cover to cover

Cawood creates fantastic products for use with D&D. I was a huge fan of their Feyland book and this one is even better. You can use it for any edition. I actually look forward to their books now more than books produced by WoTC. Keep em’ coming.

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.
