ADAPS Year Book 2019-2020

Another year has gone by and another ADAPS Year Book is published. As before, I have collected in images from club members and selected two each for inclusion in the book. We select five members to be "Featured" and they get a short biography and this year, seven images in the book. When I say we select I mean myself and Assistant Editor Mel Barnes. Mel shoots the "mugshots" and interviews the featured photographers, I do the overall editing and image selection and actually make the book using Blurb. Blurb books are superb quality and I have also noticed that their delivery time is getting faster each year. It was less than a week this time.

That's the how it's done, but why? It's all about having an easily accessible and tangible record of who the members of the club are at any particular time. As we are now on year 12 the books also contain many people who are no longer with us for one reason or another. We can still see who they were and the sort of photography they did. Visitors to the club invariably browse through the copies on display and they can still all be bought via Blurb for those who want one of their own, but there is no compulsion to do so. The exception to this is year 1 where we used Apple Books and that issue is no longer available. It is an ultra-rare collectors item!

The cover this year is by Mel Barnes and the back cover by Bobby Loomba. Bobby is also one of our featured photographers, the others being Phil Jones, Alan Duckworth, John Chappell and Adam Main.
