“When James Hyman was a scriptwriter at MTV Europe, in the 1990s, before the rise of the internet, there was a practical - as well as compulsive - reason he amassed an enormous collection of magazines, the foresight that this was going to be something else, more than a collector’s dream...it’s all about preserving and documenting the history of print.”– The New York Times.
