Ebook accepted at last

Im sorry that there is so little on this blog recently that is either Lotus or fencing orientated, but there are so many other interesting things going on, the one that caught my attention today was a book called “The Pictures and Diary of a Wartime Artist”, its a fabulous book, giving a never seen before view of WW1,
but the bit that makes is pertinent to this blog is the fact that not only is it available in ebook only (at http://www.greatwarartist.com/ ), but that this is not made obvious in the reviews in the newspapers or on the radio, a first i think for the UK, i certainly cant recall a ebook being reviewed on the quality of its content rather than the fact its E-book format only.
On a tech side note, the ebook format they use, works fine in all browsers (its flash based) but the off-line version only works on windows (not even on my vmware machine), and the printing is limited to 15 pages at a given time, but after 10mins savaging, i have a full size standard pdf that work everywhere (even on the Sony Ebook and kindle), again DRM proves pointless and just irritates.
