Out of curiosity, I looked at the book in question to see if there was colophon information. Some books include the typeface names used. This one did not. Then I did a search for 19th century free ebooks with type specimens and found one called Shniedewend & Lee Co's specimen book and price list of type, Shniedewend & Lee Co, Mackellar, Smiths & ...

There are many applications that can do this. I have explained two options that you may consider: (1) Paid Applications: (from Adobe) a. Photoshop - Image manipulation b. Illustrator - Vector Graphics c. Indesign - Layout your cover page/book exactly for Print & Publishing (2) Free Applications: (Open Source) a. GIMP - Image manipulation b. Inkscape - ...

You really have in Photoshop everything you are likely to need, at least for now. If you were setting out to do this for a living, I'd steer you toward InDesign and Illustrator, but for your purposes you can (and professional designers do, in many cases, depending on the specific design) work entirely in Photoshop. If you find you need to create ...

As long as you have paragraph styles applied to all of the items in your catalog you want bookmarked, this is super easy by using Table of Contents (I am using InDesign CC, but I think these features have been around for quite a while). When InDesign builds a TOC, it takes all of the text that is formatted with your chosen Paragraph Style(s), and adds them ...

One option, you could do is setup a specific CSS stylesheet for your website for print. This way you can designate a style different than your site. It's as simple as adding new styles inside a media query of your stylesheet and add the new styles inside. @media print{ print style here } This site has a pretty good breakdown. ...

This sounds like an enormous undertaking, and this might not be entirely the answer you are looking for; but i hope it will help. As @Lauren Ipsum points out, there are apps out there that will do the grunt-work for you. Here are two of them, the principle for both is automation of blog to print. You can get it "professionally" printed and bound, or just ...

As others have said, terrible situation to do it in Photoshop. Possible solution: Use guides to set up your A4 page spread and layout, margins etc. Make folders for each spread to keep things organized. Set up a template folder with textboxes and image masks to re-use. Use layer comps to "bookmark" each spread once you are done laying them out. Name the ...

No. CorelDRAW is not intended for book work. However X6 has some enhanced layout tools and features like text styles, baseline grid, dynamic page numbering etc. But unfortunately ToC or subject index cannot be yet done automatically. CorelDraw Forums

That depends on the license of these photos. If you merely "have access" and no publishing rights, expect a call from lawyers and shelling out a rather hefty sum to settle it out of court... If you can purchase right to use given images, check the license you're purchasing. If it lets you modify the image, okay. Often the author doesn't agree to that - ...

There is a copy on Archive.org: http://archive.org/details/laoperinadiludou00arri which seems to be higher resolution. If that doesn't suit, my suggestion would be to buy http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/ihof/p22-operina/gallery.html and use it to re-set the text you need --- if you just want the cleaned-up appearance you could use Adobe Poetica.

The best way? A designer told me once: Web-Design is not the same as (iOS) App-Design. You haven't the same size of screen, the same kind of action (touch vs mouse, etc). Just adapting a web-site to an iOS App is not recommended. You have to transform it. Use an iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch. You have to get familiar with the OS (I can't find it, but that's a ...

I am well late here, but anyway... I will not repeat some of the excellent advice @hced have given here, just see if I can add something of value. Age guidelines These are general guidelines used by illustrators and authors of children's books: Six months - two years: interactive books such as floating bath and board. “Shape” books with simple text. ...
