Letters & Journals magazine is a quarterly publication that is currently in the planning stages for a release date* of late 2010.
The magazine plans to tackle paper-based topics such as stationery product reviews, personal correspondence, journal keeping, notebooks and postcards, and more-- currently the blog is tracking its development toward publication. I'm looking forward to the chance to read about some of my favorite topics in print. Spread the word and get involved: if you want to cast your vote for what should be included in the magazine, take the Letters & Journals survey.
Speaking of print publications, Silent Type will see a flurry of design and assembly activity late this month and early September. I have been recently sidetracked with planning for a wedding, at which I am the best (wo)man (the groom is the one upon whom I'm leaning for print layout expertise, and thus you can understand the temporary hiatus). Those of you who did not send something for this issue, but still wanted a copy, we'll make sure you're covered.
One more thing: here's a timely link to a blog written by someone committed to writing a letter every day of this year.
*You know you are in the software industry when you use the term "release date" to refer to a magazine.
