THE WEEKEND COLLECTOR: Magazine History
Dr. Steven Lomazow has a fascinating blog called Magazine History: A Collector's Blog. I'm a big fan of magazines, and have several very modest collections of a variety of magazines. But nothing like his! Check out his blog, and you'll learn all kinds of fascinating background on hundreds of periodicals of byegone years... everything from history to technology, to pulp romance! Dr. Lomazow's approach is academic, but never boring.
I love that his cover photos are wonderfully detailed and nicely shot. If you click on any cover, you'll get a great large view, so you can check out all the details. It makes me want to collect MORE magazines! (Sorry, Bruce!)
