View Camera has had some excellent articles throughout the years. I could see it as value added to occassionally re-publish some of the gems of the past. In fact, having a whole issue on gems would be neat. That's an issue I would purchase.
I realize that some people may have saved older issues, and may already have some or these articles. At the same time, I'm sure that View Camera has many new subscribers in recent years, for whom these articles would also be new.
