For more years than I can remember, I’ve designed the Oz Club’s annual membership card. It’s always a challenge to find timely or appealing art that most members – particularly new members – will appreciate. Since Baum’s book, The Tin Woodman of Oz, turns 100 this year, I opted to honor that beloved character on the 2018 card.
A charming Dick Martin Tin Man was handy. I added “Welcome” to his banner to remind members that you most certainly are welcome to be part of our Club, welcome to contribute your talents, and welcome to join us at events.
When your card arrives, those of you with roots that go deep into the Club will notice a few throwbacks. The card will be the size of a business card, and printed on white stock with rounded corners. And instead of our printing cards one at time with your name in place, they’ve been printed all at once; it will be up to you to write your name on the card.
New and renewed memberships for 2018 will be available Nov. 1. I’m looking forward to a great year.
