The BEOWULF Art Book


This artbook was created as a special thank you to our very patient US Kickstarter backers who have endured the rigours of the global shipping crisis with great honour.
Pages from The BEOWULF Art Book

The book is 32 pages long plus the cover, and each spread features one or more pieces of BEOWULF art on one page, and some discussion of it's making and meaning on the other.

I was excited to get an art book with Hodgson's work (I'm a big fan of TOR 1e), but even better than the art is, as another reviewer noted, the commentaries on the pieces and process itself. This was a great surprise and the content (22 piece [...]

This small book is more than just a collection of pretty pictures. It does collect some of the fantastic art from Beowulf, but for me, the value lies in the comentaries of Jon Hodgson. Jon goes inside the art. He takes us on a journey inside the artist [...]

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.
