It Came from the Nineties!

This is issue No. 9 of private line magazine, which I produced from 1994 to 1995. I just made it into a .pdf:

privateline_magazine-november-december-1995

It’s was in black and white to save costs but I think I did a good job with the design, considering the Technology of The Times.

I did most of the writing and all of the layout. In Word. Incredibly tedious work and nothing lined up. Each page was a separate Word doc file. Argh.

The magazine was a critical success and a commercial failure. My biggest distributor went bankrupt on me, taking down my magazine and at least a hundred other small titles.

The $5,000 dollars they owed me was an unrecoverable loss. I refunded subscribers for the issues they would not receive.

My private line page is here, under Published Works.
