ABOUT THE YEAR IN REVIEW

In 2005 I began publishing a Year in Review highlighting all the events, products, and happenings of the previous year in the crazy world of Judy “fandom.”

Originally the Year in Review was in a single sheet, full color printed format. I printed a limited number that was mailed out to the first responders to the email notification. A print-quality PDF was available for download.

Printing hard copies limited the amount of space available and the flexibility that a digital-only version provided. So, the 2010 edition was done in the digital-only format. This allows me to include an unlimited number of pages, photos, and information for each year and keeps it “green” in that no paper is used. High-quality print versions are available for those who want to print their own copies.

NOTE:  To properly render the media embedded in some of the PDFs, it’s best to use the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader or the interactive readers as shown above.
