Charles and All:
First: Happy Holidays and wishes for eons of peace and love
Second: While I do not make books, I do graphics and am fairly familiar with
much of the available scanning
My experience is that scanning line drawings/black and white is
successful than scanning color photos ....
and it matters NOT AT ALL whether you are using an old logitek B&W
or the hottest, new flatbed.
Use a strong magnifyier on the original and you will see why.
I have had some reasonable luck with outdoor photography
and a local "amateur" who goes negative to disk.
Not sure this helps at all ...
Be well and happy and for now Ciaobiddy!
