Scrapbooks - bestseller
Reader reviews: 5 star!
'This magazine offers design ideas, creativity, and LO's samples
for the Scrapper who likes clean lines, quick LO's, and good design
principles. It also shows how to make album and not just individual
pages. SS is very well-produced and my only complaint is that it
doesn't come out more often and have more pages.'

Reader review: 5 star.
"Finally a magazine for the brain. A teaching,
critical thinking and, oh, so textural, that one can almost feel
the fibres on the page. The photography is striking and allows the
reader full access to the fibre art presented. It is filled with
articles on BOTH sides of the pages, instead of constant ads for
things we don't need. Food for the soul, heart and the mind. It
is a brave magazine for this time and age and one that deserves
support by all fashion, interior and fibre artists. Delicious brain
Shutterbug - Bestseller.
Reader review: Shutterbug is an excellent magazine
with good coverage on a wide variety of topics aimed at the average
"prosumer". The magazine is jammed with more articles
and reviews than most other popular magazines. It doesn't cater
to the artsy snob crowd, so if you're looking for photography that
requires you to have a finicky ego, you're probably better off looking
Reader review: 4 star

of digital, color, darkroom and black and white photography. Articles
cover Photoshop, printing, color management, lighting, toning, cropping,
composition, alternative processes and more. Tests on cameras, scanners,
imaging software, films, papers & accessories.
Reader review: 4.5 star.
"This is the best photo mag for those of
us passionate about photography. It has long in debth articles on
technique and equipment. Moreover it features "how to"
examples from some of the best fine art photographers of our time.
It is thus quite different from other magazines that feature some
no name staff writer pretending to be Paul Strand. This does make
this magazine perhaps less than ideal for the first time casual
shutterbug trying out his/her first pocketcam. But for all of us
striving to do good photography this magazine has no peer. It is
not a glossy magazine and its print quality is rather low. It is
a far cry from Phototechnik International or Spoon, but it is about
the creating of rather then the displaying of photographs. Having
read every photomagazine in the english and german speaking worlds
in the last 15 years this is the best. "
Outdoor Photographer - Bestseller
The editorial emphasis of this magazine is on
the practical use of the cameras in the field. It looks at the modern
photographic world by encouraging photography as part of a lifestyle.
It motivates readers to make use of equipment and their talents
in conjunction with recreational activities. In addition, its articles
intend to inspire readers to seek new equipment, try new techniques
and travel to new destinations.
