Spring and Summer Brass Bells

Post by Bill Basler » Sun Dec 04, 2011 1:17 pm

Given the recent events here, I am falling behind on all tasks that I thought I would be handling this weekend, namely getting an email out to all club members announcing the Summer Brass Bell.

The Spring issue is printed, and the Summer issue is at the printer now. I am now moving forward with the Fall issue.

Just to make sure I am doing what I have promised, here are links to the Spring and

Spring

Summer
https://baslerdesign.com:8001/_SIPTyjA583yewR

The Summer features the long awaited 20-foot Custom feature, which publishes a database of all 20 Custom hull records for the first time in history. This is a very big deal to Custom fans, and I know there are a lot of you.

Since these hull records span two pages and across the center gutter, you may choose to view this issue as spreads.

thanks Bill, I choose to wait and turn each page with deep anticipation. To sloooowly open the plastic wrapping holding in the fresh smell of ink. All those dots of ink cleverly coordinated together revieling glorious images. Ahhh ..

I was on the road last weekend with slow Wifi connections so had to wait til I was home to take a peek at the Brass Bell download.

The Summer 2011 Brass Bell is amazing. Congratulations for producing one of the best Brass Bell's ever. I look forward to seeing it in print, feel the pages and smell the ink when it arrives along with the Spring issue in the mailbox. All I can say is WOW!!!

The Spring and Summer issues are going to the USPS today. You should have your issues very soon. we mail these Periodical Class mail so they do take some time to reach some destinations, but they are on their way.

I must be slipping, thought I renewed my membership last month, but did not. Nothing to do with any issues other than a mild case of CRS disease. Patiently looking forward to the new Bell's.

BRASS BELL arrived yesterday !

Post by Paul P » Tue Jan 17, 2012 12:05 pm

Hello Bill, All,

Yesterday my copies of the Brass Bell arrived in Nashville.

Literally dripping of quality not unlike the feeling I get when I am looking at a vintage engraved Beretta 12 ga. over/under Trap gun, a vintage Colt, a Packard, or......a Chris Craft!

I am taken aback at the highly skilled time investment that was OBVIOUSLY required to produce something like this. A labor of love, no doubt, and very impressive in so many ways; photography, content, layout, printing, sheesh!

regards,

Paul
