Re: Mosquitos über Berlin. Nachtjagd mit der Messerschmitt Bf 109 und Me 262

Quoting Corto: "Das einzige was mir bei VDM etwas Sorge bereitet ist die Druckqualität (gerade die Bilder) Da hat IMHO Herr Urbanke (Luftwaffe Verlag Start) die Latte hoch gehängt."

What he was saying is that he is a bit worried about the quality of the printed version, especially the images. And that Axel Urbanke has set a rather high standard on those.

On a personal note: I have been considering running this as a self-published version and actually grabbed my proof-reading copies off two different book-in-demand suppliers.

VDM is preparing an offset print and I will be in the nice position to directly compare the quality of the two side by side, especially looking at the images

One needs to keep in mind though that the images used are 70+ years old in many cases and the quality of the original image is already limited. But we will see...

Hello Andreas,


Check the DPI resolution of the paper. It doesn't matter how old the images are. If the paper can support better resolution, use it. If not, consider a semi-gloss or similar. I'm sure Axel Urbanke can advise you further.

Since photos can be scanned separately, find out what the correct DPI (dots per inch) is.



Best,
Ed

I'm really looking forward to the book Mosquitos about Berlin!
That the print quality at VDM is bad would be new to me. Have the complete airfields of the Luftwaffe series and am very satisfied with the quality, I think we should give the new book first a chance here is the author Although Zapf is but another as the new Mosquitos book. As far as printing quality is concerned, did not Mr. Ubanke print a book at VDM?
https://www.vdmedien24.de/MIT-FW-190...Z-Axel-Urbanke Best regards!

Just look at the publisher, you can pre-order it, date for delivery is on 21.04.2018.

Many Regards!

We are getting closer to release now - "T-6" so to say. If anyone will make it to Speyer next Saturday (April 21, 2018), meet me at the VDM booth, hopefully with copies available then.

Andreas

PS: The new Jet&Prop has issued a backside ad for those that can read German (sorry...)

Just a heads-up for everyone - and it was great to meet some of you at Speyer personally.

yep it was nice to talk to you! (I am the guy with the blue NY polo shirt, who was in Joburg SA to see the last ME262 Doubleseater! And there was small impatient young boy by my side) I have not read the book yet. But I will give you a feedback!

Greetings
