Ettore Sobrero’s books are, some of the most beautifully bound miniature volumes that I have ever seen and I was very glad to discover that I still had one of his catalogues.
I scanned the catalogue to see if I would be able to reproduce the fine quality print here. The answer to that is: no.
However, I thought that the scans weren’t completely unflattering and decided to see if I could remember how to make a slideshow and upload it to Slideshare.
This was only partially successful because I had to compress the images in the presentation in order to be able to upload the file. This naturally affected the quality of the image on-screen and the scans became decidedly uncomplimentary.
Below is the result of my Plan B, which was to host the images on another site. I hope that this will prove to be a reliable way of storing images, although, in this instance, I still had to reduce the files a little in size.
Another reason for writing this particular blog post was to experiment with some of the changes in file management that have taken place on WordPress.
My apologies to all who find my experiments in the technological field duller than ditch water.
