From the editor

This article was published in 1998, in Newsletter 16.

Sorry about the quality of the pictures in some copies of the last newsletter. Photocopying clearly isn’t up to the job – though it is the most economical way – so this time we’re trying a new process. It costs a little more, but should dramatically improve the print quality. For aficionados, the newsletter is now produced almost completely electronically: the pictures were mostly originated on a Kodak DC210 digital camera, the stories collected by electronic mail and put together in a page make up program, and the final page descriptions sent across the Internet to the printers, who are using a very high speed laser press, a Xerox Docutech 135. The printed results still have to be delivered, though!

This is my sixth Newsletter, completing one year’s Campaign news. I started with every intention of editing just one issue, and put a tremendous amount of work into it, sure that I wouldn’t do it again. It has been an interesting year, and still takes as much effort. Thanks to everyone who has made it possible, especially Debby, Dave and Clare.
