Blue Mustang Press Releases Latest in Yearbook Reprint Line
Online PR News – 02-October-2011 – – cBoston, MA – September 28, 2011 -- Blue Mustang Press is happy to announce a new addition to its Munich American High School (MAHS) line of YesterYearbooks: the reprinted 1976 yearbook, the Mnemonic. The publication of this book brings to an even dozen the number of MAHS yearbook volumes released under the YesterYearbook banner which includes a 450 page book spanning the decades from the 1940s to the 1990s.
To many, nothing provides a more vivid opportunity to relive ones school days than the venerable yearbook. Yet, despite their availability when first released, yearbooks are one of the most easily lost items...and as a result, one of the most sought after. Class rings are often worn or kept in a jewelry box; letter jackets are kept in closets with clothes that are moved from place to place. Keeping track of them is easy.
But yearbooks often end up in moving boxes with other books, in attics, or in the basement. Often lost or discarded. Too often, yearbooks are irreplaceable. Yearbook printing companies seldom, if ever, have copies of old yearbooks. Short of finding one online, replacing a lost yearbook is a difficult task.
Blue Mustang Press has developed the YesterYearbook: An exact reproduction of previously published yearbooks. Originally designed for personal replacement, the books are great for reunions, alumni associations, school websites, and school archivists. An existing copy of a school’s yearbook is scanned and then reprinted in hardcover or soft-cover format at a reasonable cost. New or updated material can even be added to the book to insure a unique and treasured memento.
Blue Mustang Press’s efforts began as a preservation project for a military dependent school in Munich, Germany. The former students of this school, the first American school opened in Germany after World War II, span the globe and the decades and much of the history of the school had been lost since the school was shuttered in the early 1990s. In an attempt to preserve as much of the school’s past as possible, the reprinting of the yearbooks began. Currently, the volumes include 1957/1958/1959, 1964, 1976, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, and 1986.
