he images on this web site were created using a high resolution digital camera with a built-in flash. Further processing was accomplished using Adobe Photoshop.
The detailed views of the various flaps were taken at a very slight angle to better simulate the perspective of one using the book. Including the fingers and hands of the user in the images also helps to lend a sense of proportion and depth to the images. Each of the plates measure 48 X 36 cm.
The web site was designed by Melissa Gutierrez, Graduate Assistant, in
consultation with Scott Fiddelke, Instructional Designer, and Edwin Holtum,
Curator of the John Martin Rare Book Room. All are staff members of the
Hardin Library for the Health Sciences.
