The Swedish Mouse Club, SVEMUS, has a newspaper that comes out 3-6 times a year. Today it´s on pdf, but from 198x to 201x it was on paper. I was the editor a couple of years. It´s a very nice paper and it´s name is HUSMUSEN. In English it will be the HOUSE MOUSE. The format in paper was A5 (I´m not sure if this is a global term).

2017 the newspaper HUSMUSEN has it´s 30 year birthday!

Did it change look every year or are those editions from many years apart?

#2 First 10 years the newspaper looked the same and had a strict policy of how it should look. White. Always the same title on frontpage, standard pages and so on. Also index strict - every number some articles about facts, shows, fun and so on.

Then I became head editor and... I changed it... but I had rules of course. Like facts and fun in every number and so on. Color strict for every number:

  • blue - number 1, february
  • yellow - number 2, april
  • pink - number 3, june
  • orange - number 4, august
  • green - number 5, oktober
  • red - number 6, december

Then the numbers of papers on a year increased from 6 to 4... Because of too high cost's.

Today SVEMUS can´t afford to make the paper version at all... :-(Sad

Aha. On the other hand a web version, if there is one, is probably faster to update when things happen. With four issues a year you will in a worst case report on things three months after they happened. :-)
