Two more things:

  • CATMA first steps is our online tutorial. You can open it on-screen in a new tab or download it for printout here.
  • Here’s a pdf of “Alice_in_Wonderland” which we will use as an example text. Take a look at it to see how rich the original print version actually is: There’s a lot besides ‘words on paper’ that contributes to its appeal!
