A few years ago Tova digitized a collection of poems that her great grandfather wrote. She then got the scans printed and bound as a gift for her mother. This evening, at my mother-in-law's request, I made a little website of those poems. It was a fun project I was able to tackle in about an hour.

First I uploaded the PDF to archive.org and Google Drive, then I used pdf2htmlEX to convert the PDF into a webpage. I then threw together a little wrapper webpage to make pdf2htmlEX's output a tiny bit prettier, and published the whole kit-and-caboodle using surge.sh.

@bradenslen thanks! I was amazed by how much of the heavy lifting pdf2htmlEX was able to do!
