The Student Journalist and Editing the Yearbook.
Arnold, Edmund C.
Written for students and faculty advisors who are involved in producing the school yearbook, this book discusses and illustrates the contents of a well-made yearbook. The function of the yearbook is examined in chapter one, and suggestions are made for arranging the yearbook according to the basic theme. Chapter two discusses coypwriting for the yearbook, and also cites common errors that the staff can easily avoid by carefully checking for factual accuracy (e.g., if the debate team was 6-2, they could not have participated in seven contests). The importance of type in producing an attractive yearbook is discussed in chapter three with illustrations of different typefaces used in headlines, captions, and text. Chapter four explains the use of photography in the yearbook, and provides suggestions for taking posed and unposed shots that are creative and informative at the same time. Chapter five provides detailed information on preparing yearbook layout. Chapter six explores the use of color, and chapter seven stresses the importance of the cover as the crowning jewel to the yearbook. (RB)
