Jim Petrucci has been a yearbook consultant for a very long time. Russell’s claim that Jim was involved in the layout of the Gutenberg bible is a blatant lie, however Jim did start his yearbook career in 1967, joining Walsworth in ’77. The cutting edge of technology in those days was setting copy on an IBM selectric and pasting it in place on the page. Jim’s specialty is staff organization and training, book planning and assistance to new advisers. InDesign, Quark, Photoshop are words in a language that Jim does not speak, but what an award winning yearbook should look like, he knows.
