Stop the Presses

Via a circuitious path (isn't it always?) I found this magazine publishing site. I didn't know I had been searching for this all my life, but there it is. Print on demand or electronic delivery, eco friendly paper stocks, what looks to be very high quality photographically.

So now I'm contemplating my "Making, Mending, Mothering: Living an Artistic Life as a Family" book project which has been rattling around in my head and inside my computer for about a year now. It just suddenly seems to be shouting that it wants to be a magazine. My big question is how much people would be interested in a quarterly publication around those themes, instead of a single book.

I had actually been toying with the idea of converting the MMM project into a limited edition hand made art book. I would consider that much more compatible with a magazine type of project than a commercially published book.

The more I consider this, the more right it feels. OK I'm going to do it. I'm not sure when, but stay tuned.

Happy-dance time.

Go for it! It looks a lot like Lulu, but for magazines. I love the p.o.d. thing, and would definitely buy an issue. Can't wait to see what you do with this!

I have young mama friends I would just *adore* gifting with something like this. It sounds yummy.
