YZ Publications – Press Release
YZ Publications is pleased to announce that at long last David Lawrence’s book ‘Let There Be Y’s’ is once again available, but now
on Compact Disc. The book was first published in 1998 and quickly earned a high reputation of being the definitive book on the MG Y Series.
A supplement was published three years later containing further facts and details that surfaced mainly as a result of research and feedback
from the initial book launch. A new second supplement, not available in hard copy, has now been produced to accompany this new release of
The CD version of the book is unique in that the is an embedded cross-reference between the original book and the two supplements.
Therefore if there is an update from subsequent research then it will be linked in the original text to the place in the appropriate
Supplement (and back from the Supplement to the book text) by a hyperlink. The book is provided in PDF format and a reader is included with
the disc. It is also possible to search the text of both the book and supplements using the standard Acrobat search facility.
A number of owners have requested that it should be possible to print certain pages to enable them to be used in the garage/workshop with
restoration. We are pleased to have been able to incorporate this. If you want to print a page range showing the wiring diagram, the location
of the brake pipes, or just where cable are fed on the bulkhead, this is possible.
The CDs released on the 1st November are for the Windows Operating system and are fully compatible with Windows version 7. The MAC version of
the release will be announced when available.
YZ Publications has a number of other titles that it is making available using the same technology and it is anticipated that there will be
significant demand for these. Please click here for further information.
