Press clipping: Research
The first volumes of the PDF edition are now available.
The Library Edition of the Works of John Ruskin, edited by Cook and Wedderburn, has been available on CD-ROM for many years: changing technology has led to it becoming unusable for some readers - particularly those using Windows 7 and Mac systems. This pdf version, created by John Krug (Library Systems Co-ordinator, Lancaster University) and Jen Shepherd (Ruskin Library and Research Centre), makes it available to all once again - the only software needed is Adobe Reader 8 or later, available free from Adobe's website.
The work is by no means complete: at present only volumes1-11 are available, which includes The Poetry of Architecture (Volume 1), Poems (Volume 2), Modern Painters (Volumes 3-7), The Seven Lamps of Architecture (Volume 8) and The Stones of Venice (Volumes 9-11). Links to the volumes can be found further down the page.
