Michael,

Yes I can see that now - about the typography. Needs addressing though, if Cornish is to become more popular. However, also not appropriate for graphics-intensive books, as you say.

Thanks for the reply.

Regards

Herbie

This isn't a priority for me. In the first place, it is not at all trivial to convert a book into eBook format; certainly any control one has over typography, font choice, etc. is out the window. My books are not just "plain text"; I take some care in presentation. 

For a graphics-intensive book like The Beast of Bodmin Moor, it would make for a very large file indeed.

I may look into eBooks at some time in the future, but for now, I have plenty of traditional publishing projects in hand.

I hope you enjoy the book. :-)
