Transition: Pass it on!

These two mini-zines inform and inspire in six pages (read them onscreen at right as slide show)--and you can make them yourself, following the tips below. Thanks to Transition in a Nutshell Press, aka Regula and Michael Russelle. 

To make your own copies:

  1. Click here to download Habits of the Heart and here for Transition Towns. Each is a two-page PDF (with multiple mini-pages laid out on each sheet). For each one:

  2. Send it to print, pausing at the "Print" dialog box onscreen. Choose these options: 

  • for Orientation, choose "Auto" or "Landscape" (rather than "Portrait")

  • for Page Scaling, choose "None" or "100%"

  • Choose "2-sided," then "Long-edge binding" (if these options apply for your printer) *

   3. Follow the fold-and-cut directions in the margin of the printed sheet.


*  If not, print it one side at a time (flipping the sheet as needed), or print two single-sided sheets and then photocopy one onto the back of the other.
