Daring to Be Different

2002 Yearbooks Break Traditional Rules
to Create Better Books
We started thumbing through the 2002 crop of yearbooks looking for the best new ideas, the ‘must-haves.’
What we found is about the only thing that last year’s yearbooks have in common is their desire to be different. Convention is out. A sense of adventure is what it’s all about. Still, there are a fair number of elements that seemed to show up over and over again. To find common threads, we talked to advisers from Walsworth’s President’s Collection — advisers whose books have won or been finalists for the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s Gold or Silver Crown awards or for the National Scholastic Press Association and Associated Collegiate Press’ Pacemaker awards.
