Each link below goes to a pdf of pages of my grandfather’s poetry book, 3rd edition, published 1974.
C. H. Burwell: Poems 1974 ed.
(3 PDF format – new as of March 2018)
Use one of these and print just one side. It is the very first page and the last page. The graytone version has better reproduction of the photo of Charles Burwell but the background white is not as crisp. The b&w version has a nice crisp white background, but the photo loses tonality. So it’s your choice.
This file contains 24 pages, the remainder of the poems. They should be printed double-sided. The pages are not numbered so use the individual file names as your guide for putting the book together.
This is the cover, in gray. If you want a cover in colour, see the red one below in jpeg format. Print it single-sided on card stock.
Poetry Page Layout
So each file “page” is two booklet pages, stapled in the middle. The page numbers are in the file name. So 1-46 has 1 on the left side. The other side of that page is title-47 with the title page on the opposite side of page 1. They are arranged below in order for printing.
You want the cover* first, then “photo-48” (both only one printed side), then “title-47” on one side and “1-46” on the other. From there on, use double-sided printing for the rest of the pages. The file names with the smaller number first will be the page “fronts” when printed and those with the larger number first are the page “backs”. The indented files are the back side of the one listed above.
When you’ve made your pages and cut the excess off, staple it together along the middle. And there you go, Grandpa’s poetry book for you!
*The cover in pdf format is in grayscale for reasons of file size. Grandpa had them printed in several colours including gray, blue, brown and red. Most of the third edition were red. Below is a jpeg (120 res.) of the red cover. If you wish to reproduce it, click on it for full size image.
Individual page PDFs
(For now, I will leave the individual ‘page’ pdfs here. Each link is 2 pages of the put-together poetry book. Remember, ‘cover’ and ‘photo’ pages are single-sided, the rest double-sided.)
