New magazine issue notifications

I'd like a service that notifies me when a new issue of a magazine of choice comes out. Is there such a service that explicitly provides such a service or an existing solution that can be configured to provide such a service? Ideally, this wouldn't mean subscribing to the magazine, just merely a notification that a new issue from the magazine is available.

Value of 1878-9 "Scientific American" magazine?

I ran into some issues of "Scientific American, dated February 23rd, November 30th 1878 and a third February 1st, 1879, all in good shape. I also have one copy of "The Contemporary Review" dated November of 1879, in OK shape. I am curious as to whether they have any collector's value at this point. I have no idea how I came to own them, as these were dated before my father was born.

Help me find originals of the magazine that published my dad's essay

Blog-Magazines For Cool Colorful Punk Babes

Lately I've been really into the blog Ribbon Around A Bomb, who writes about female-fronted 70s post-punk, Twin Peaks, feminist art, and leather jackets. I also love The Pulp Zine, which is full of teen dreams and high school small town angst, an obsession with Burger Records, 90s nostalgia, black lipstick and pink hair. I'm looking for more blogs that cover punk, garage rock, femme fun, DIY, weirdo fashion, nostalgia, queerness, creativity, feminism, art, and worship of countercultural idols. Basically, I'm a fully-grown scummy punk boyfemme who wants the experience of flipping through a teen magazine tailored to my interests. What other sites would I love? [more inside]

What was that arty architecture/design magazine from a decade back?

This is killing me, because I used to know. Indie, quirky, much-beloved NY-based shelter and design magazine from late 90s - early 00s. Lasted maybe three years? Did fun stuff with typography. Not Domino. I keep thinking it was called Egg, but that was something else.

Life Magazine? Article About A Violent Pair of Addicts

I'm searching for an ethnographic, non-fiction article about two young homeless addicts, one a white male and one a pregnant black female. I believe, but am not certain, it was published decades ago in Life Magazine and that I found it through Longform.org. I'll put as many (possibly triggering, definitely unpleasant) details as I can inside. [more inside]

When I was a kid, I wanted to run my own magazine when I grew up. :)

Hi guys! Okay, so I have a background is advanced art direction & design and I am looking into how to make superawesome interactive digital magazines and booklets that will kick ass and people will love. Do you have experience with this kinda platform stuff? Awesome. I don't. And most people I talk to don't, so I need your feedback and advice pretty please. And if you don't know anything about that, can you give me names of interactive books/magazines you think kick ass (and tell me why you like them) so I can check them out and be dazzled and inspired? Thanks oh, so much. :) [more inside]

New Yorker publication schedule

I know that the New Yorker Magazine publishes 47 times per year. But what weeks does it skip? There doesn't seem to be calendar of publication/non-publication weeks. I have a recurring fear of finishing an issue at the end of a week only to find that I have to wait 7 more days for another one. (the horror!)

find me a Canadian women's magazine

I'm looking for a magazine subscription for a gift. The recipient lives in small-town Canada, is very fit and outdoorsy, has a cozy house, enjoys gardening in the summer, and is a child-free professional in her 30s. Can you recommend any magazines that might fit? Not too rustic, but not too design-focused. Just a general eco-friendly-interesting-articles-home-and-lifestyle-women's-interest mag (no celebrities and not too much fashion and make-up). US magazines would be fine but they would need to post to Canada at a reasonable rate.

In your opinion what are the most interesting topics in medicine today?

My original proposed topic for a publication I'm writing in was about printing organs and bone marrow but it may be rejected because someone else proposed the same idea.

Perfect magazines for me?

I'd like to find some magazines to subscribe to that deal with road cycling, fixed gear (including track) cycling, and filmmaking! I'm particularly interested in magazines that feature strong design (so don't just think FilmMaker Magazine, more like Little White Lies). This will not just be for my enjoyment, but they will live in my edit suite for advertising creatives to flip through during long edit days.

Architectural magazines in Spanish?

I'm (re-)learning Spanish and am finding the stories in my "First Spanish Reader" to be somewhat lacking in interest. Since I enjoy thumbing through architectural/interior design magazines, I thought a print subscription to one in Spanish would be a fun way to learn. I've encountered the Spanish version of Architectural Living ("Arquitectura Viva"), which seems alright. I'd like to know if there are other options. For reference, my preferred aesthetic is stark modern with aged materials (examples: wabi sabi, Scandinavian and excessive concrete). Muchas gracias!

Where can I find issues of 3-2-1 Contact magazine from the 1980's?

The best I've found from casual searches of Internet resources is a 138MB zip of scans, but this archive is too incomplete for my purposes. Is there a library or archive that would have something like this? Or were magazines not considered archive-worthy, and personal collections (eBay, magazine forums) are my only hope? [more inside]
