Vintage Tech Info is a hobby project.
The original goal was to make out-of-print tech info available again. Valuable information for us hobbyists is getting unavailable if we don’t take action. Because of complex international copyright laws, re-publications are sometimes not possible. And because of the usually small audience, commercial publishers can’t re-publish because costs won’t be covered.
Craig Richter’s “How To Make An Old Porsche Fly” project is the first attempt to make useful information available again to a larger public.
Hopefully there will be more but it is a challenge. Not because the authors don’t want to re-publish. Most of them are very happy to make their work available again and get the recognition they deserve. The challenge starts when they don’t live anymore and someone else must give permission to re-publish.
Help others to keep access to valuable information. If you know out of print technical publications that have useful information for others, please let us know. And of you’re a copyright holder/author interested in letting us help to re-publish your work, please don’t hesitate and contact us! We’ll do the work and it won’t cost you a dime. In fact, we’ll share any profits with you.
