What excitement to wake up this morning to the premiere edition of Shades, The Magazine, now online at Shades of the Departed. footnoteMaven has been hosting an exceptional blog-format publication for some time and the magazine format brings Shades to a new level of innovative design and accessibility.
Antique photograph enthusiasts and family historians yet to meet Shades, are sure to find much of interest in the monthly magazine. What began as a vehicle for sharing footnoteMaven’s extensive collection of antique and vintage photographs has grown to a publication offering historical research, archival techniques, lessons in photo restoration and digital scrapbooking, and features on innovative ways to use and share photographs.
As one of the several columnists and writers privileged to be a part of Shades for many months, I am excited about the new format and design. What a surprise, as well, to see the photo-inspiration for Penny Dreadful’s monthly story as the cover photo in this November Issue.
Congratulations, footnoteMaven! And thank you for making Penny Dreadful a part of Shades of the Departed Magazine. I can’t wait to see what you have planned next.
