Supernatural Law First Amendment Issue: "The Works Speak for Themselves"

Watermarked PDF

What would happen if works of art could talk? It turns out that people might not be too happy with what the works have to say--they may even sue! That's the premise of this special first amendment issue of Batton Lash's Supernatural Law series, featuring Brooklyn attorneys Alanna Wolff and Jeff Byrd. In this issue, their client, self-proclaimed warlock Fred Bohmbob, has accidentally unleashed a spell that suddenly causes artworks to be able to speak. At first people are thrilled to hear what paintings have to say. But soon some are offended by the most outspoken works, and the point is reached where a gallery owner is arrested for a painting's salacious remarks, while another gallery is shut down because the paintings are "obscene." The gallery owners are represented by the Art Gallery Legal Defense Fund (AGLDF), which lets Wolff & Byrd know that Bohmbob may be held responsible as well. (Comics fans will note parallels to the CBLDF.)

Original electronic
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.
