The only positive thing I can say about the transfer is that any typographical errors from the scanning process have been corrected. Word and letter spacing are consistent and numbers and letters are not confused.
The formatting of the table of contents is strange and choppy and the text formatting is no better. Headlines are displayed in an enormous font size which does not change and the text font size is larger than any other of my other Kindle books at the same font size setting. When I read this title, I have to set the font size smaller than I normally would, then switch back to my preferred setting when reading other titles.
Also, the footnotes are not hyperlinked. The notes are in a chapter at the end of the book and if you want to check a note while reading, you must leave your page and manually page through the notes chapter to find the relevant note.
Worst of all, the product page on Amazon advertises 73 color illustrations which do not exist in the Kindle Edition. Every photo is scanned in grayscale. In contrast, a Kindle Edition of another Oxford History of Art title which I own has many color illustrations viewable when reading the book on Kindle for PC or Mac. There is no reason that this title could not also have the promised color illustrations.
In fact, there is no reason that this digital transfer should be so awful. It completely eliminates any convenience of a Kindle book. If I had known it was this poor, I would never have purchased the Kindle Edition.
If you are a university student studying art, this book will help you tremendously! So much help, even after reading a few lines, ideas came straight into my head.
Remember, if your struggling with your art history assignment, this book will help! :)
