I've uploaded some other scans here:

Let me know what you like and I'll see what I can do.

For the 200x200 PDFs I've been using a 2-stage process:

1. Photocopy the Wacci using 'Dual page copy' (i.e. it turns the A3 spread into 2 separate A4 copies).

2. Feed the resulting pages into the document feeder to produce a single PDF file.

Taking into account the imperfections of the photocopier (you will see a small blemish on every other page), the low resolution of the original, the inability to get the pages perfectly square-on (without removing the staples I suppose) and the law of diminishing returns (higher resolution=bigger files=scanning in small groups=longer time but for not much difference in result), I decided on the 200x200 option.

If you can think of some way round the factors above then please let me know  :)

In the meantime, I hope people enjoy having access to them again.


Sorry to resurrect an old thread (again) - nearly a decade, which may be a record - but it's just to note that there is a newer topic on the same subject:
