The Guidelines publication I developed for the Historic Preservation Commission and the Historic Review Board was the first PDF I streamed over the Danish service issue.com.
The Guidelines are an illustrated book that matches history to homes and buildings from different periods and recommends ways for their safekeeping.
Since that streamed so well and I had purposely made its 200+ illustrations a resolution for good quality printing I decided to push the envelope and see how much digital content I could squeeze into extremely high resolution images and see how they streamed in files of up to 100 meg in size.
This 16 page study of The Forgotten Mills of Saugerties uses interpretive images I selected for a talk I'm to present at Lifespring in a few weeks, on October 22nd.
This "weblet" introduces this work as one of a series of web products for distributing a portfolio of publications I've created that interprete the history of Saugerties. Those I introduced before this I will likely redesign in light of this success.
