A really lovely Kindle ebook

I was reading the gem that is Peter Akroyd's London Under when I started wondering about the ebook incarnation. And it was surprisingly terrific.

Contrast: ebook illustrations
with print illustrations

The e illustrations are ALMOST legible on my iOS devices.  Wondering about the Fire display of images...

Contrast ebook chapter break

with print chapter breaks

I do wish the chapter heading was set off on its own, but it's not the worst.

Very elegant little translation into a ebook, in my opinion. We weren't seeing products like this last year, that's for sure. We live in interesting times!
