The one other item I have, I apologize for the cruddy photos.  My photo skills are nearly nil, and it's WAY too big to scan... it's bigger than a treasury comic.  If anybody really wants improved images I'll see what I can do:

Oh WOW, that's so cool Eric!
We really should do a proper scan and share it here on DCM.
I'm ready and willing to do any editing if wanted.
:D :)

Which one, Yoc?  I can scan the puzzle fine, but the Circus is, like I said, WAY too big to scan.  Maybe if I can find a copy shop or something that can do it...

Thanks! OE. I'm adding it to my collection.

Hi Eric,
Both would be perfect additions for the DCM collection no?
They'd make great shares for our coming TENTH ANNIVERSARY not far down the road!
If it were possible.

Guys, you can do overlapping scans then in Photoshop put it together into one seamless scan.

In Photoshop choose FILE > AUTOMATE > PHOTOSMERGE

I have done it several times and it works great!!!

Everyone,

I would be willing to help/work on this Peter Wheat Circus project.

How can we go about getting high resolution scans?

I just need nice scans that have about an inch of overlap so they can be stitched back together.

What are the dimensions of the originals?

Thanks for the offer B.  I can do the same as well if OE can manage to get them scanned somehow.

Thank you both for your offers; I'll see what I can do next weekend to get the pages of the circus scanned.  It will take four scans for each sheet to get a complete image, though.

The original is roughly 13x16 inches.

The actual circus pages are in very good shape but the cover envelope is in very bad shape, I may not be able to scan it corner by corner...

How about the Polaris Submarine or the Tank? Anyone ever get one of these?

Thanks!
I think there's a book or some site that shares a lot of these kind of things.  I wish my memory worked better to say which.
