FootnoteMaven has done it again with a stunning edition of Shades of the Departed Magazine, now available via ShadesoftheDeparted.com. I am so honored to be included in the Company of Players working on this publication.
I think one of the Shades Magazine's best features is it's broad range of subjects within the world of capturing images. Family historians and photo-buffs will find interesting articles on using the Ken Burns effect in sharing photographs, restoring and retouching images, dating old photographs, and the Kodak Company in wartime. Readers can lean more about the historical decades captured on film, and even be challenged to think like a sketch-artist in visualizing their ancestors.
Penelope Dreadful is thrilled to be in print once more with a tale of bashful love and creative spirit in "A Dreadful Proposal, or a Little Birdie Told Her." The thread of this story just flew in the window with the new year.
It is obvious from the elegant design and crisp images that the Editor is committed to producing a top-notch publication... and at no charge to the reader. Don't miss the January issue of Shades, the Magazine. And, if you like what you read, please take a minute to go back to ShadesoftheDeparted.com and leave a comment for footnoteMaven.
