Brochure/Bookmark for O’Brian’s Aubrey/Maturin Novels

Team Whatnot has created a brochure/bookmark to help customers discern whether or not they should read the Aubrey/Maturin series. The brochure/bookmark includes a complete list of the series titles in order or publication as well as an overview of the characters, the navies, the culture, the food, and the vessel. Click here to download a PDF of the brochure/bookmark for printing on standard 8.5 x 11″ paper. See below for folding instructions.

This brochure is designed to print on each side of an 8.5 x 11″ piece of paper. It has 4 panels and, when folded, will measure 2.25″ wide x 8.5″ tall. It’s a cross between a brochure and a bookmark. To print, both sides should be oriented the same way, with the top edges matching each other. Lay the brochure flat with the bulk of the copy facing you. Fold the left 8.5″ edge toward the right 8.5″ edge. Now you should see the complete list of titles in the series on a 5.5 x 8.5″ panel. Fold one more time, bringing the left 8.5″ folded edge toward the 8.5″ edge. Your brochure/bookmark is complete and ready for insertion into the books.

Here’s a moving demonstration on how to fold.
