About the Project

Aladore is a classic fantasy novel by Henry Newbolt, first published in 1914.

Despite being republished in the 1970’s and 80’s in “forgotten fantasy” paperbacks, Aladore is not well known or popular.  The book is now in the public domain and there are a few digitized copies available for free download.  However, these are all PDFs of scanned materials with poor quality OCR.  The PDF and automatically generated e-book formats do not provide a satisfactory reading experience on e-readers.  While there are a few e-book editions being sold online, there are no high quality versions available for free.

But I wanted to read it!

This blog is about a personal attempt to create a high quality, readable version of the text–to be freely distributed.  A simple “open-digital-reader’s-edition”.

Along the way we will learn about all kinds of Free software to demystify ebooks and empower users.  Create, Edit, Read, Share!

Learn a bit more at a reflection post or the Digital Aladore poster.
