    1. Hi Judith, When you select the issue URL all the individual articles included appear on a single page but for now you will then have to down load each. It is our hope that we can once again produce print-ready PDFs but advertisers are reluctant to invest the sums it requires. We were able to produce the first three for $128,000 donated from Kickstarter demonstrating that we can produce beautiful issues that you see below. If we rely solely on subscribers the cost per issue is around $75 which is too high for most to pay, so for now digital is our only economical option. In time the revenue from subscribers will lower this cost so encourage others to subscribe. I have produced magazines for 25 years and newspapers for 20 before that and I love the feel of print… even a PDF as below speaks to a better experience.
      Regards,
      Dan
