    Make sure you pay for your subscription with your Confederate money so you get your money’s worth.

    My mother-in-law used PayPal. I really do not want to entangle this 93 year-old lady in any refund drama. I was surprised and said nothing on Christmas morning.

    I really do not want the last five back issues (I have them from the last year). I would rather have one of the collected reprints of either the LF techniques or the lens articles.

    You could always ask Steve Simmons on his LF Facebook page... providing you use Facebook.

    I think I started with issue #2, or else I have lost the first issue, but I have always enjoyed receiving my next issue...I bought two or three years subscriptions at a time. I missed the last year -- I had moved and by the time I thought to re-subscribe, it had closed down. I won $250 off of a Ries Tripod in the first contest in ViewCamera (2nd place in Alt Photo) and got another image in. I even got a call from Steve, who appolized for mis-spelling my last name (actually both first and last names were mis-spelled), then he went on to give me the name and contact info of a Texas doctor who wanted to buy a print of my image in the magazine. Mis-spell my name all you want if I can sell a print! LOL! It was a great resource whose job got taken over by the internet. But I owe my present photographic love/endeavors to a Nov/Dec 1990 ViewCamera issue that had a receipe for making carbon prints. It took me a couple years to tweak that receipe into prints I wanted and it has kept me on the Dark Slide.

    And the Dark Slide does not care about typos...

    Nope. The typos never bothered me. I enjoyed every issue.

    Got the promised issues of View Camera yesterday. All from 2015. I had alreadyread them all back in 2015.

    I had tried to contact them through the website, by e-mail and by phone. The published phone number seem to have been disconnected.` No response via e-mail either. Had hoped to switch the payment from a non-subscription to one of the reprinted article collections (techniques or lenses) but no such luck.

    Anyway, they delivered what was promised in a timely manner. Just wish the situation had been made more clear to my 93 year old Mother-in-law.
