The 2003 Old Farmer’s Almanac

Cover of the 2003 edition of The Old Farmer's Almanac After the launch of the new website in June, our time working with our colleagues on the web team at Yankee Publishing in New Hampshire has been consumed with a gradual redesign of, the website of The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

You can see the beginnings of the fruits of this work on the front page of this week. The new design on that page coincides with the release of the 2003 edition of the The Old Farmer’s Almanac (order yours today online or find copies at a bookstore or newsstand near you).

The new design is the work of the masterful Steve Muskie. Steve took the best parts of the old design and created a new presentation that has more content presented more clearly. Our contribution to the effort was the engines that drive the personalization features on the front page — weather, tides, sunrise and so on — and the databases behind them.

There’s lots more in store in the days and weeks to come. Stay tuned.

By the way, the sun is going to rise at 7:04 a.m. tomorrow morning.
