Convention Publications

Like just about all fannish endeavors, conventions also produce many publications. The most common are flyers, Progress Reports, and Program Books. There are many other types as well: newsletters (with frequencies from 1 to 1 a day to 1 an hour), program schedules, souvenir books, Guest of Honor collections, Memory Books, and all sorts of one-time publications. Along with the photos we have from many conventions, these convention pubs can provide a better understanding of the fannish and professional activities at conventions. We'll try to provide as many as we can here. Note to Conrunners: please send us electronic copies of your conventions publications so we can make them available permanently.
