Hi there.Thanks for visiting our Patreon page. We're really excited that you're interested in finding out more about Faithful Editions. We hope that you'll appreciate what we're doing and consider supporting our projects.
What we're doingWe're rescuing some really great books from obscurity by creating true-to-the-original digital versions. We produce .epub and .mobi format books, so all of the major eReaders and tablets are supported. (We'll be adding PDF format soon.) Our focus is primarily on older Christian literature, so if you share that interest, you'll probably enjoy a lot of the titles we work on.
Our philosophy is pretty simple: Worthwhile books should to be digitized so that they can be accessible to modern readers. However, we also think that these digital editions should be free from errors and formatted to have the look and feel of the original. So far, that hasn't been done very well. Most of the digitized books commonly available are filled with textual errors because they have not been proofread by a human, and even those that have been corrected tend to be very poorly formatted. Our Patreon supporters are helping us change that by enabling us to invest what it takes to produce a better end result.
How Patreon worksPatreon allows our projects to be funded on a book-by-book basis. You can become a Patron by setting a level of support, and as we complete ebooks, you'll be able to access them on our Patrons-only content page. You're not locked into anything, so if you need to change your support level at any time you can do that. You can also set a maximum monthly support amount that fits your budget. For reference, we plan to release about 4 to 6 funded ebooks per month.
We've added extras at different levels of support as a way of saying thank you. The full details on different support levels are at the bottom of this page.
