Erinnerungen an die

                                                                              by Deborah G. Andrews

    I am the Weimaraner Club of America (WCA) Liaison to the Weimaraner Klub e.V. of Germany.

     September 4th-7th, 1997 recognized a land mark in Weimaraner breed history. Centenary celebrations and breed related events hosted by the Weimaraner Klub e.V. were conducted in and around the classical city of Weimar.

     As one of the organizers of the international gathering, I thought it appropriate to capture the historic events during the 4-day jubilee. Requests were made to International Weimaraner Club Delegates to send their comments and photos to my colleague, Brigitta Guggolz, and myself for the purpose of creating a Weimaraner Memory Yearbook. The contributions to our efforts were overwhelming!!

I wish to extend heartfelt thanks to all those who helped to make this commemorative book a reality.

    I compiled the memory book with graphic designer, Cassandra Sappington, from Great Falls, Montana, for nearly six years. The layout is fashioned in a "Yearbook" style to utilize as many photos and graphic images as possible. Since the book honors the Weimaraner Klub e.V., the text appears in both English and German.

    When the manuscript was in the final stages, the next step would be to select a reputable printer/binder to my complete my project. Virginia Alexander strongly urged me to select Anaconda Press, Inc. [API], in Forestville, Maryland. API helped me successfully self-publish The Weimaraner Memory Book in early January 2003. The meticulous attention to detail of everyone involved was certainly reflected in all aspects of the end result. I wish to sincerely thank Cathy and Octavian Cretu for sharing their advice, wisdom, and talents throughout the final process.

     Each book features a film laminated, case bound cover measuring 9" x 12", smyth sewn text, individually shrink-wrapped, and a page count of approximately 256.

     Division One comprises historical aspects of the Weimaraner Klub e.V., as it pays tribute to significant breed contributors of the past and present and denotes early art subjects relating to Weimaraner beginnings.

     Divisions Two through Six cover the various centenary events held in and around Weimar, September 4th - 7th, 1997. Weimar’s Lord Mayor Dr. Volkhardt Germer and Honorary President of the Weimaraner Klub e.V., Dr. Werner Petri have contributed supporting statements to the Preface.

    Division Seven covers our WCA Delegation’s visit to Holland for the Dutch Weimaraner Club Championship Breed Show and Retrieving Ratings Test, September 13th and 14th, 1997. The events were scheduled the weekend following the centenary celebrations in Weimar, Germany.

    Many photographs, lithographs, paintings, graphics, hunting postcards and silhouettes were utilized in the layout design. I selected one of the traditional hunting colors (gray/brown/green/tan) for each of the seven division lead-in pages. The end sheets (inside front cover (IFC)/ first page and inside back cover (IBC)/ last page) are Grafika Scottish Green Mist. Old hunting postcard scenes and silhouettes overlay the green stock background.

    During the beginning of 2003, complimentary books were presented to various German dignitaries, prominent locations in Germany, Holland, the U.S., and the Library of Congress for copyright registration. Some book recipients included Weimar’s Lord Mayor Dr. Volkhardt Germer/ Weimar City Hall, the dog training school/ Hundeschule "Passion" in Weimar-Schöndorf, owned and operated by Thomas and Susanne Kümmel, Honorary President of the Weimaraner Klub e.V., Dr. Werner Petri, the Weimaraner-Archives, and the Top-Hotel Dorotheenhof/ Weimar, Germany.
