James, thank you for making such an important archive available. It's astounding how much information has been lost even in this digital age, so Hymag is a lifesaver. I hope to visit the collection in person once these things are possible again, meanwhile I hope this small donation can help.
James, I would give so much more to support your important work and passion for preserving the cultural heritage of magazines. But after a horrific cancer battle followed by this Summer’s spinal cord injury, Timlynn and my financial resources are strained. BTW, we are Citizen Scientists doing research developing the MAGAZINEgts ground truth storage format for serial publications. We should talk sometime. I believe there are significant collaborative Fundes and researchers who could help you pursue your passion. Have a GREAT and safe holiday. Jim & Timlynn
Magazines are more than just the articles in them, they are time capsules of a time and place. They are history, culture, art, opinion and life encapsulated. In this digital world we are in danger of losing the granular detail of our lives in favour of an edited and disposable vision of who we are, who we were and who we might be.
