Free Book by Helena Marrion - a bookleteer initiative.

Helena Marrion is my mother. She's an artist and she made this little alphabet book as a present for her granddaughter, but she thought that such a little child might scribble on the pages. But bookleteer is a brilliant way of getting round that! First, I scanned the book into jpgs. I used  Epson Smart Panel. Then I made all those jpgs into pdfs. Then I submitted them to bookleteer, which puts 4 jpgs  (or 4 pages from a pdf file) onto a pdf which prints as a bookleteer document, which can be cut and folded to make a small book. Then print off as many copies as you like. If she buries them in the garden, disinters them, and washes them clean (why do kids DO that?) no worries! just print off another copy and the original is pristine! Hooray!
Here is a free bookleteer book-get it from scribd. Follow the link and you'll see the pdf which you can print at home. These books are self-print so only those that are truly wanted are printed; no waste, nothing is remaindered.
Here's the link to bookleteer to see more :
and here's a link to Helena's picasa site, so you can see more of her beautiful paintings
