Disappointing Kindle edition
on 12 August 2012
Interesting text, with plenty of fascinating detail about the lives of women in the 15th and 16th centuries, but it's a real shame that the publisher did not include any of the images from the print edition. It's frustrating to read text that says, for instance, 'see plate xx' or 'see reproduction of original, without actually being able to see the images referred to. I realise that Kindle isn't exactly set up for images, but nevertheless some publishers make a reasonable fist of including them in their Kindle editions - and when viewed on an iPad rather than the Amazon Kindle, images are reproduced perfectly well. So why leave them out?
Publishers should start to pay more attention to the details when publishing Kindle editions. And Amazon should be applying pressure to get them to do so.
