    A "Dear Aggie" column? That did it. Who could possibly resist anything like that?

    Count me in for a subscription. Any estimate on how long it will take to get to press? At that small size a saddlebound book would be the least expensive and most efficient route. I can see if my boss would like to bid on the work when you are ready for it.

    I'm throwing a darkroom party at the weekend and wonder if you could suggest some party games to help the whole thing go with a swing! I tried this at the last one I held, but "bobbing for apples in the dev tank" didn't go quite as well as I'd thought it would..."

    Seriously though, all the best. Looking around and the wealth of talent on this site, this could be very good indeed!

    There is reason to believe an APUG mag would be accepted by sufficient supporters to be viable. I recently (today) observed several posts in rec.photo.darkroom concerning the demise of Darkroom magazine and expressing a desire for a "good" phsical publication as a replacement of sorts.

    I would enthusiastically support an effort if the product can be made first-class with good photo and diagram reproduction in the technical articles. There are issues of course. One is circulation. APUG is truly universal and cosmopolitan, therefore postage costs for even a small pub must be considered. Then there is the compensation for writers. I ask for nothing but consideration, but there are those who's living depend on writing and who can contribute but should be paid. No one can be expected to donate the time required to undertake such an enterprise without compensation either.

    I subscribed to a publication by a small "company" called "Better Boat" a few years back. The mag was only a few pages and not "slick" but the articles made it worth the small-ish cost. I think it was available at better newsstands, but I can't remember clearly - it was a while ago. This is an example of a small group publishing a small mag that was well worth the effort, at least then.

    I think something _must_ be done to try to preserve traditional chemical photography before it is a lost art. You may not believe this is possible, but try and find someone who can repair a toaster.

    Considering the public interest in traditional photography: my next door neighbor restores antique gasoline engines. He subscribes to several pubs relative to his work. I’ve been surprised at his ability to obtain information and parts. Given the similarity in circumstances, I see no reason why “our” efforts could not succeed as well. (Everyone gives their old engines to Doug and their old cameras to me.)

    Truly, dr bob.

    We defintely have the "spirit"!!

    I would suggest we draft FrankB as humor editor. If he keeps up with ideas like "bobbing for apples in the dev tank" (watch for the producers of "Fear Factor" to steal this one..) I'm going to have to buy a box of "Depends." :lol:

    When I suggested the consideration of resuscitating the name "Camera and Darkroom", I was serously thinking of name recogniton. I, for one, would at least be stopped in my tracks at the newstand if I saw the title "Camera and Darkroom" on the shelves. That magazine, and I'll be the first to admit it was not perfect, had a sky-high image in the photographic market. At the end of its life, it was a Larry Flynt publication ... I can only wonder if its demise was really due the idea that it was not "pornographic enough" for the 'powers that used to be' in that organization.

    To tell the truth, if *I* saw the title "Camera and Darkroom" on a magazine reck, I'd buy five of them, without even browsing - just as a knee-jerk reaction.

    In the Larry Flint spirit, we could just call it "Wet."

    wasn't camera and darkroom set up to LOSE MONEY? Wasn't it shut down because it MADE MONEY and was not the income shelter it was supposed to be? This is how I think I remember hearing the story.

    I wonder who the owner of the "Camera and Darkroom"name is. It is prudent to avoid legal hassles.
