This site is primarily concerned with archiving old images, maps, magazine articles etc, that were generally published prior to 1940 in the United Kingdom, rendering them outside of copyright restrictions. UK copyright is life plus seventy years for printed media such as articles, photographs, drawings, maps etc. Where Ordnance Survey maps are concerned however, copyright is only fifty years after publication.
Some of the content that I archive, I hope to be able to edit in order to create ebooks, primarily for the Apple iPad, but will probably offer them as PDF files too.
The tools I’m using at the moment are a Mustek 2400Pro scanner, Adobe Photoshop Elements 10, Prizmo and Image Smith, all on Mac OSX 10.8.
