Since the Met is a museum with a CC0 collection and this painting has the "OA Public Domain" icon, you don't need to find separate PD proof for this (though that is a good skill to practice). You just have to keep in mind that these are the only museums we are allowed to use images from without PD proof (unless you can clearly prove that the museum has explicitly licensed the images under CC0, in which case it can get added to the manual).

Not sure who's managing this so someone else can give the final stamp of approval for the cover.

Cover looks good. You might want to try and lighten it up a bit. As Weijia said you don’t need both a CCO museum and  PD proof, but if you do please link to the specific page so we don’t have to thumb through the text… Thanks

Update:

I have been following the step-by-step guide and am now at the point of proofreading and making small editorial changes on a chapter-by-chapter basis. The cover image selection was based on a recommendation from a previous producer, but after going through the book I will most likely want to choose a different one. Only thing that I'm unsure of is when running SE lint on the book, there is still one error that I cannot figure out how to resolve:

Empty element in metadata.
<meta content="cover.jpg" name="cover"/>

As far as XHTML goes, this looks syntactically correct. When I run SE build-images it keeps the cover as an SVG, not JPG, so if I were to finish my editorial changes today (ha), I don't see SE tools magically converting the SVG to JPG now. If I update the meta content to cover.svg, I still get the empty element error when running lint.

I'm going to keep proofreading for now (will take a while), but was just wondering if others have come across this peculiarity and it will eventually resolve itself, or if I didn't follow the instructions correctly and ended up messing something up.

Well I’m a at loss as to where that bit of code came from. Looking through other Standard  projects the only mention of cover is <item href="images/cover.svg" id="cover.svg" media-type="image/svg+xml" properties="cover-image”/> in the content.opf. Did you chage the content.opf file or the default  cover?

The svgs are dealt with in the build process.

That line is inserted during build and should not be present in the
ebook source. Did you accidentally copy in content.opf from a compiled
epub, instead of using `se create-draft`?

Thank you both; that did the trick. What I did was I followed the step-by-step instructions (se create-draft) but then when filling out the variables in content.opf I compared my version with the published version from Anne of Green Gables to make sure that I didn't miss anything. I must have copied it over because when I removed the <meta name="cover" tag, se lint is now happy. As long as it gets inserted back in toward the end of the build process (se prepare-release?), I should be fine because the only items left in lint are editorial issues (e.g., unbalanced quotes).

Thanks again!

FWIW what happens is se build takes a correctly formed project and builds multiple versions. The resulting compatible epub loses a lot of the advanced stuff like svgs in order to be, well, compatible. ;-)

Manual of Style question. When I run "se lint" it accurately reports "Period followed by lowercase letter." This occurs repeatedly in Chapter 5 during a letter that a child has written to Anne. The letter has terrible spelling and grammar, but it is supposed to since it is written by a child. These are not typos and correcting them with an [Editorial] commit would ruin the intent of the letter.

So I guess my question is, am I allowed to ignore se lint Manual Review warnings (Code t-029), or is there some way to add XHTML semantics to suppress the warnings/errors? I don't see anything addressing this in the Manual of Style. An example snippet from the letter is:

Milty bolter told me a grate story in school yesterday. it is troo. old Joe Mosey and Leon were playing cards...

Suggestion on how to keep the integrity of the original source yet let others know semantically that the spelling/grammar is intentional would be appreciated. Thanks!

You can ignore them, see

the se-lint-ignore.xml file

Those should be ok to ignore.

File them in the se-lint-ignore.xml file: https://standardebooks.org/manual/1.7.0/2-filesystem#2.3 and they can be checked on review

After a long hiatus, I am finally coming back to this, my first project. I am over 70% complete with proofreading, with all changes thus far committed to the repository at https://github.com/arthmire/l-m-montgomery_anne-of-the-island.

In the past few months, I found a much better potential cover art at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Summer_1909_Frank_Weston_Benson.jpg. Is Wikimedia to be trusted when they state a work of art is Public Domain or do I need to independently verify?

You have to independently verify. See SEMoS 10.3.3.7.

Actually, you are lucky once again, because this image is from RISD and licensed under CC0 ;)

On Wikimedia, it's good to check the references, because the original image might have been licensed under CC0 (like you saw here) or there could be a reference to an art book that provides PD proof if you dig into it.

So because the Summer painting is in the Rhode Island School of Design collection under CC0, I do not need to hunt down a publication that includes the printed painting? I.e., I'm allowed to commit into my project? That would be most helpful because I've been trying to find a book that includes this painting and am having a rough time of it. In the meantime, I'll continue proofreading the final ~30% and post back here when ready for review. Thanks!

I would carefully read this part of the manual: https://standardebooks.org/manual/1.7.0/10-art-and-images#10.3.3.7.4

The idea is that if you find a painting from one of these museums and the image has been licensed under CC0 by the museum (which you can find by checking the criterion given in the list), you don't need to find separate proof (i.e. a book scan) for the public domain status. You should still check with the mailing list with your manager to see if they approve the painting before you commit it (so they can verify the CC0 license and make sure that the painting is appropriate to the book, and not already used elsewhere). But all you have to do in that case is post the museum entry link and point to the CC0 license on the museum page.

Hi there, this project was abandoned. Usually we ask that new attempts
start fresh instead of trying to build on an abandoned attempt, because
it's hard to see where a producer left off and what's left to do in an
ebook.

Hi everyone,

Looks like perhaps this project has been abandoned again-- I see this thread hasn't been updated since October.
I'm looking for a first project to contribute to.
Lia, if you're still working on this, I would be more than happy to contribute.
Thanks!

Hi everyone.

Looks like this project might have been abandoned again. I'm interested in starting it again as a first project. Any objections?
Lia, if you are still working on it, I'd be happy to help, as I know how to use GitHub as a designer.

Thanks all.

Micki or Lia:

I had started a repository and got a lot of the typos fixed for the first 70% of the book but never finished getting the last 30% in Git. Latest version is still at https://github.com/arthmire/l-m-montgomery_anne-of-the-island, but I never updated the cover art from the person I took this project over from; I had been planning on using https://risdmuseum.org/art-design/collection/summer-13912. Let me know if you do not get around to this and I can pick this back up again. Thanks.

Hello,

Is anyone actively working on Anne of the Island?  I would like to take this project on as a first project if it is available.

Thanks

That one has been abandoned several times, so you can pick it up if
you'd like.

Please search the group archives for previous attempts, and note
anything of interest that came up.

There is an epigraph and a dedication, which should go in separate
files. This also means you'll have to include a half title page. There's
some poetry and a letter or two, see the manual for how to style those.

Make sure to read the Standard Ebooks Manual of Style before starting,
as you won't know what to fix if you haven't read the standards. In
particular, please closely review the semantics, high level patterns,
and typography sections:

https://standardebooks.org/manual

https://standardebooks.org/manual/latest/4-semantics

https://standardebooks.org/manual/latest/7-high-level-structural-patterns

https://standardebooks.org/manual/latest/8-typography

The step by step guide will take you from start to finish:

https://standardebooks.org/contribute/producing-an-ebook-step-by-step

Please email often if you have any questions at all. Our standards are
well-established so there is probably already a standard for formatting
whatever problem you've encountered.

When you're ready, email back with a link to your Github repository so
that I can mark you as having started.

Have fun! :)

Hi Everyone,

I'm sorry for abandoning this project-- this was not my intention.
I must not have had my notifications turned "on"; I never saw the response I got at the end of December about being able to dig into this project. I thought it wasn't ago, or someone else had taken over.

I'd still love to contribute to this project, so thank you for the response and all the links. I know we can finish this project together once and for all.
