Selvedge - bestseller

Selvedge provides a textile publication which fits seamlessly into a creative lifestyle. Directed towards an international, discerning audience, Selvedge covers fine textiles in every context: fine art, interiors, fashion, travel and shopping.

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 food. "

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 elsewheres.'

Reader review: 4 star

Photo Techniques - Bestseller.

Photo Techniques magazine providing the best 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.
