One More Magazine Is Returning to Print

FINE BOOKS & COLLECTIONS COMPENDIUM is returning to print after a year and a half hiatus.  The magazine, which targets collectors of rare and collectible books, stopped publication of its bi-monthly edition in November 2008 to go electronic with a monthly e-letter and weekly blog.

After a successful November 2009 print edition, publisher Journalistic Inc decided to resume printing on a quarterly basis in April 2010.  “We do think print has a certain charm and value that is impossible to obtain online,” said associate publisher Kim Draper in a press release.

The print edition will be a combination of the best online articles and new features, columns and resources.  Tips on map and manuscript collecting, information on fine presses and art will also be included.  An annual directory of booksellers will continue to be printed with a new guide to classes, societies, fairs, and symposiums related to book collecting.  The popular monthly e-letter and blog will continue to be the main source of information.

The online editor, Rebecca Barry, rebecca@finebooksmagazine.com, will also serve as the print editor.
