Yes, please! I'm hoping one or two will be "shorter" since that will make
layout a lot more flexible. As for specs, Do you have a copy of the REAL
Forward Into The Past? That size and shape -- in other words, 8.5x11 folded
in half to make a 5.5x8.5 page.
as a matter of fact, I do. It is the size you guessed. There are 16
inside pages (from 4 sheets of paper) and a heaver weight cover. And
it is b&w. The cover has the name a line stating "An Introductory
Guide to the SCA" both written in a computer based old English font.
There is a nice picture on the cover. There are short articles that
mostly take one page with a simple title: Membership, What is the
SCA?, Getting Started, What to Wear, All Purpose T-tunic (2 pages),
Fitting in at Events, Names and Persons, Kingdom and Local Officers,
Who is Who? (just over 2 pages) Heraldry, Guilds, Households and
Sociability, The Gentle Arts and Sciences and SCA Combat. The center
spread is a USA and Canada (there are arrows pointing towards the non
N. American principalities) map showing the kingdoms and the inside
back cover has shorter articles called For Further Information and
Acknowledgements and a box with notes about the illustrations. Each
page, except the center spread and the inside front and back of the
cover, has a 1" wide by the full length illustration that includes a
bit of medieval swirlly stuff and circles with the heraldry of the
kingdoms, peerages, and offices. Looking over it, this is a huge
amount of information, much more that you can teach in an SCA 101
class. And except for the map of kingdoms it is still up-to-date.
(This issue is copyright 1989) The back cover has only the return
address in order to use as a self mailer.
