thanks for the suggestion. and, yes, JAB has raised my hackles since I
first looked at it, so reading it (I do have a subscription) is a chore for
me! I'd prefer something that didn't feel so clique-y to me. perhaps I'm
just super sensitive, but it seems to me that they focus heavily on certain
types of artists books, instead of the full range of what is out there.
any other magazine suggestions? I'd be interested in what people read that
is related to the field of book art, and letterpress printing.
