3.5 and digital skew

"And as he heard it Ywain forgot all the ills that he had suffered in all his life, and he thought on such a place as might be the land of his desire" (p.142)

“And as he heard it Ywain forgot all the ills that he had suffered in all his life, and he thought on such a place as might be the land of his desire” (p.142)

I suddenly felt like category #3 was getting too big… so I broke it into two sections, “3. Witnesses” and “3.5 Digital Witnesses.”  Sorry for any confusion this could cause, but I am guessing it will be OKAY.

I am almost done gathering the all the files needed for the next stage!  Aren’t you dieing to learn all about it?

The image above shows some issues of interpretation of the digital witness.  Its clearly not square.  Is this an original feature of the print?  Or is it distortion introduced by photography or post processing? Or both?  I can correct it with some editing, but then I am falsely representing the digital witness at the least…

I am always tempted to crop off the UGLY false frame printed around the illustrations.  But that wouldn’t be presenting the authentic context?  Oh Alice, the illustrations are not great, and they aren’t helped by the poor print layout either…
