Yearbook Fundamentals for Student Publications.
Wise, DeWitt D., Ed.
The basic objective and the concepts involved in planning an effective contemporary yearbook are examined. Yearbooks are rated on the design, layout, content coverage, and other considerations. An official C.S.P.A. Scorebook is included in the document. The booklet is divided into four principal sections. Section I, The Design of the Book, lists planning, determining book size, and allocating space as the three steps in the design process. Section II, Layout, points out that planning the layout requires prior planning of the basic content and the approach to presenting it effectively to the reader. Section II also points out that good layout allows nothing to distract the reader's attention from the essential content of the book. Section III, Content Coverage, includes a discussion of photography, copy, and tone. Section IV, Production Considerations, covers printing, paper, proofs and the yearbook cover. (Author/CK)
