It’s all black and white and I think I did a good job with the design, considering the Technology of The Time.

I did most of the writing and all of the layout. In Word. Incredibly tedious and nothing ever lined up. Each page was a separate Word doc file. Argh.

The magazine was a critical success and commercial failure. My biggest distributor went bankrupt on me, taking down my magazine and at least a hundred other small titles.

The $5,000 dollars Fine Print owed me was an unrecoverable loss. I refunded money to every subscriber who asked for money back.

After proceedings, Fine Print never paid a penny back to anyone.
