    New Reef magazine! - from Anthony

    cheers, my friends

    It's been a busy year as usual, but a blessing to have good work!

    I am very proud to announce the release of my latest project:
    C . . . the Journal of Aquatic Science Travel and Adventure
    The image work is stunning and aimed to impress as well as educate... the quality of construct of the mag itself is of the highest quality - it's the same or better cover stock and body pages than your favorite perfect bound books! This journal is printed on 100# gloss laminated stock with thick 80# pages to hold all the ink from those beautiful pictures!

    I'd be much obliged if you'd take a moment to look over the Table of Contents and Cover and consider subscribing. I dearly need the support of fellow hobbyists and dedicated admirers of the reef!

    Plus... I'm hoping to earn enough to pay for the strong coffee I need each day to be able to continue to mentor on the message boards, write articles and share information at large. Yes, I do reckon that I owe the Arabica bean growers a credit in my mags and books.

    Shipping will begin in September, barring any radical hiccups with the printer (like mistaking food dye for print ink or a bizarre paper shortage in the temperate rainforest of W. PA that we live in )

    with kindest regards,

    Anthony Calfo

    thank you my friends I'm really enjoying this work as much or more than anything I've done to date!

    Best of luck, looks like a winner, but how did coffee get sooooooooooooo expensive??????
    ahhh... very good and fair question, my friend. Rather simple answer too: advertising... or lack thereof

    To prevent the journal from being overun with adverts or having really thin/cheap paper, cover, etc... the money has to come from somehwhere. I think I'm still OK when/if folks reckon the quality and quantity of content here(especially with minimal advertising... only ~ 12 ads in the first 3/4 of the mag!) plus... similar journals and special edition works with even lower quality cover/page quality (note: mine is 100/80# heavy weights... like my books!) are more expensive by far.

    And its frankly my target audience... readers - brainy/info hungry folks that buy a mag to read for quality of content that will support this mag, rather than just folks looking for the newest adverts. The latter not being a bad thing at all! We all buy, I think, certain mags for the current ads and product peeks (computer mag... the old FAMA, etc). And those mags are (need to be really) "affordably" printed (light paper, heavy ads to subsidize).

    But thats the antithesis of what I have produced here.
