High-quality free ePub books of classics literature — standardebooks.org/
...complete with a real, detailed typographic style guide: standardebooks.org/manual/1.0.

These are built from existing, public-domain etexts at Project Gutenberg, but human edited for structure and typographic detail. (And other, more boring, non-typography things like cover art)

The purpose of this is to get a 'taper' transform that actually works.
The homography transform preserves straight lines and planes, whereas the normal taper transform just makes a horrible mess of 3D objects

Ursula K Le Guin, on tech workers:
"Real power goes to waste. Every wizard uses his art against the others, serving the men of greed. What good can any art be used that way? It's wasted. It goes wrong, or it's thrown away. Like slaves' lives. Nobody can be free alone. Not even a mage. All of them working their magic in prison cells, to gain nothing. There's no way to use power for good."
- "The Finder", from "Tales from Earthsea"
