There's a new magazine out in Britain called Advanced Photographer. I'd show you the cover but there's no clean image of it at the website (growl. I wish I could lecture all PR people and rap their collective knuckles with a ruler). TOP reader Roger Bradbury of Milton Keynes, England, bought the maiden issue and says he's impressed with it and will be looking forward to issue #2.
Just a WTTW to those of you who save and file archives of magazines (as some of my friends do)—the first issue is usually the hardest one to find after the fact. I'm just sayin'.

Featured Comment by Geoff Wittig: "While we're on the subject of collectable magazines, I would like to point to the latest issue of View Camera magazine. The entire issue consists of a wonderful portfolio of Paul Caponigro's photographs. Although it's labeled September/October, it only hit the shelves about a week ago.
"It's hard to exaggerate what a gem this issue is. Most of the 59 photographs have never been published before. The page layout and the lovely typography for the introduction are by Eleanor Morris Caponigro, one of the finest book designers and typographers of the last 40 years. The reproduction quality is excellent, up to current book standards. Anyone who appreciates Paul Caponigro's work should waste no time finding a copy before it disappears from the shelves. Caponigro's work is not well represented in print, considering his artistic importance."
