evoking the work to an adequate degree (after art in the mind) is created on GNU/Linux (Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) 64-bit).

The scan of the second edition of the book ART IN THE MIND, which was published by allen memorial art museum, oberlin college in 1971, was OCRed with OCRFeeder 0.7.9 using the OCR engines cuneiform 1.1.0+dfsg-2, gocr 0.49-1, tesseract-ocr 3.02.01-2 and ocrad 0.21-3 and exported to PDF (from scratch) and to .odt files, which are then exported to PDF with LibreOffice 3.5.7.2.

OCRFeeder 0.7.9 was used with various auto and manual settings for recognition and export to achieve abstracted OCR results in PDFs on purpose, instead of using the settings for proper OCRs. A total of 8 OCRed PDF versions of the book were created. These source versions cannot be made available here according to conventional intellectual property laws since the book ART IN THE MIND is copyrighted and some pages in these versions are properly OCRed.

An “abstracted” version for each page was chosen, all pages were rotated to portrait and merged to a single pdf file using PdfShuffler 0.6.0.

The back cover page was created with LibreOffice 3.5.7.2 using the font OCR-A 0.2.

Metadata information was added with pdftk 1.44-4build1

Print and screen versions created with Moonshiner v1.0
