The Old Dyssean
"The Old Dyssean" was the magazine produced by the Old Dyssean Society. Stories, anecdotes and memories by its members.From 2001 to 2016.





The Dyssean

"The Dyssean"
as opposed to "The Old Dyssean" was produced by ODs and the school between 1955 and 1972.


The line drawing (artist unknown) on the cover opposite shows the school viewed from the NW after 
the 1965 Diss/Eye merger.  Showing the new Assembly Hall and to the right the Art Room and Domestic Science Room.


Does anyone know who the artist was?  Arthur Copping the editor doesn't (Jul 2012).  
Update - Feb 2016, it has been suggested 
by Christine Cooper that it was James (Jim) Govier because of  the resemblance of the stylised figures to some of his other art.
Update - Mar 2016, it was James Govier.

How Do We Do That ?
To create "The Dyssean and The Old Dyssean" online version the PDF* file that
the printer (the person) uses is displayed on screen then
each page is saved as a JPGtm ** file.

All the JPGs are then inserted into a Libre Officetm text file in the
correct order for reading i.e. pages 1, 2, 3 etc.   The printer's PDF is arranged
to print the book, so you see Front Cover - Back Cover, Pg 1 - Pg 16
etc. That's why we don't use that.

This is then saved and exported as a new PDF file.

This PDF is uploaded via FTP*** to a hosting web site and you get it from there by clicking on the link.

Update, July 2012 - That's how we used to do it, we now use ACDSee to edit the images and produce the PDF files, much easier and quicker.

  * PDF Portable Document Format - invented by 'Adobe' to ensure that what you see on the paper is EXACTLY what you see on screen.
 ** JPG or JPEG - Joint Photographic Experts Group - (lossy compressed 24 bit color image storage format) a file that is an image/picture.
*** FTP File Transfer Protocol - a means of putting information onto web sites.
