Highmoon Media Productions presents Bardic Lore: Ogham.

He said, "Ogham is a gift from the Mother Goddess to her children, the druids. She gave it to her son, Oghma, the Danann warrior-poet, and he in turn gave it to us. It is a language of nature, of magic. It is as deceptively simple as some notches on a rock, but it hides the secrets of creation." I told him I wanted to learn the secrets of ogham, thinking he would do as every other adult around me had always done, laugh and shoo me away. But he didn?t. "You are not a druid," he said, and my heart sunk. "You are a bard, a fili, and you must fulfill that destiny first. When you are a fili come back to see me, and I will teach you then." It was twenty-two years before I went back to study with Connor McCroghan, but he was still waiting for me, and indeed he taught me the secrets of ogham. And it is in his honor and memory that I created the ogham stone that today marks his resting place.

The PDF is not a big one only covering twelve pages. It is nicely laid out though and has some art in it. The book marks are well done even for a small book such as this. It only has one file of it and does have some color to the pictures so it can [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
