The Adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan: A Coloring Book

$2.99

This title contains line art 24 illustrations by artist Cyrus Leroy Baldridge that are all especially suitable for coloring. They are inspired by The Adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan, a classic work of picaresque fiction by British diplomat James Morier that was first published in 1824 and which has been compared with the Arabian Nights. Morier's epic adventure is filled with rip-roaring exploits, witty satire, and nimble humor, and follows the rags-to-riches escapades of Hajji Baba, the lazy son of a barber, as he seeks his fortune ... but only if it doesn’t demand too much work of him. 

Baldridge himself was an adventurer and set out from Baghdad with his wife to personally retrace the journeys of Hajji Baba. He experienced a series of fantastic and harrowing adventures — in one town a native told him calmly “the last man who sketched here, we stoned to death” — and produced hundreds of images based on them, including the ones that appear in this coloring book.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
