December 2021 will be our last monthly issue for the foreseeable future. We will continue to post images from past issues on social media. We will continue to publish special projects from time to time, so please contact us if you wish to collaborate. If you have already submitted images, we will consider them for possible inclusion in future publications.
Most issues were published online through the print-on-demand service MagCloud.com. A free digital version of those issues is available from MagCloud.com, either to view online or download as a PDF file. We also had some issues printed by local Portland printer Symbiosis Printing, which has even better print quality than MagCloud. Those issues have sold out, but we could arrange for more to be printed if needed.
Issue 32 is a special editorial edition, inspired by the 2013 vampire movie “Only Lovers Left Alive” (available to stream on Prime or Youtube). We had a great time shooting at the fabulous Shafer Baillie Mansion in Seattle. It was our first attempt at an issue intended solely as an editorial.

If you would like to buy a copy of Issue 32, please us. We had it printed locally, by Symbiosis Printing. If you live near Portland, OR, we can arrange for you can pick it up from us directly. Otherwise, we will ship it to you. If you want to see what's in it, we can arrange to show it to you, but we have posted all the images to Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter, so you can look at it immediately there.
Issue 28 is the Second Annual Retrospective issue, containing the best images from issues 17 to 27. It was printed locally, by Symbiosis Printing. We were very pleased with the quality of the printing. The first print run sold out. We're planning on printing a second run. To purchase a copy, please us.
Issue 16 is the First Annual Retrospective issue, containing the best images from issues 1 to 15. We originally printed a hardcover version through IngramSpark, a huge global printer and distributor. Bookstores can still obtain it from them, but the first run we ordered for ourselves has sold out. Later, we also published a soft cover version on MagCloud, which is still available for purchase. We're planning to print a third, even better version through Symbiosis Printing. To purchase a copy of this third version, please us.
