    no bookstore anymore. no newstand anywhere.

    is it time yet for a magazine devoted to old magazines. with articles on how to rehab and care for your old magazines. even how to create and print your own new old magazines, with glossy paper and particularly expensive ink. how to forge your own binding staples. etc.
    PVA is crap.

    Fred Meyer carries it. At least in some stores. Cheaper with a subscription...

    Had a subscription since issue 49,prior to that it was a bit of an adventure trying to find a copy.I use the Rich Jones technique of a few pages at a time to reduce the gap between issues.

    Yes, I'm only missing a very few of the earliest ones... but we've decided I'll go through the stacks of them and save only those I've enjoy rereading during the winter months.

    Use acid free and reversible PVA and paper if you want them not to discolour……… An old bookbinder knows……

    I read every issue.

    When I signed up for print + electronic I got rid of all my back issues. Made more bookshelf space.

    My house is a fire trap collection of WBM, In Fisherman, and Great Lakes Angler. Oh and the first volume year of Easyriders. Easyriders - Wikipedia

    I buy some when I see them at bookstores. I keep all the back issues I can, I have bought from WB Store some back issues in pdf. I buy a lot of used Easyriders Magazines and Lowrider, but of course you never see used Woodenboat magazines at garage sales.

    I read somewhere that your eyes adapt to reading online and you read paper less. Scary but maybe true. I read online all day long, but very little print media. I even find that I will search old pdfs of truck brochures even when I have the paper printed versions with better resolution pictures and printed words. I think to myself that it is because I can easily expand the text or the picture detail I am researching, but it is likely because I am more adjusted to the lap top.
