        1. Thank you, Dale! As I was saying to Tim, It’s a shame I couldn’t extract the artwork from the cds where it was archived. It would’ve looked so much better than these photos.

  2. That is a gorgeous disc set. What an undertaking that must have been. Wonderful results.

    1. Ah, thank you, Tim! It really was a huge undertaking. Every single thing in it was edited… even the original postcards. It took some time just to organize all the info and photos… not to mention the last minute changes / additions, moving the layout pages forward etc! Still, it was a joy working on it. Shame that the 8! cds with the artwork are no longer transferable [why I had to photograph pages]. cds from 2004 and artwork is either damaged or inaccessible due to the applications upgrades.

      1. So much gets lost from upgrades and obsolescence. We have boxes and boxes of obsolete media even after recycling a lot of it.I can read some of it on an old Mac SE/30, but there’s no way to get it into the network to transfer data, and most of the files are on software that is long gone with the cyber wind.

        1. That’s one downside to computers. No continuity. When you think that we still have scriptures from centuries ago it sounds ridiculous not being able to read a 15 year old cd, not to mention floppy disc!
