Unlikely. Magazines, at least in the past, involved a lot of
photo-composition that is an analog not a digital process. Although I'd
guess they probably started using Pagemaker for some stuff, at some

But I think the community would make short work of this once permission
is granted to do the project. And I think we could get permission if the
business case were worked out. As others have said, the problem may
simply be that Lonnie doesn't have all the copies.

Also, he may not think it's worth the risk. If we take financial risk to
him out of the equation, and he just gets to collect some defined amount
of profit, he might well agree.

Here's a funny email I got on the M100 list that I still can't quite

Lemme get this straight:  You emailed Lonnie Falk about one of his old
magazines and he DID NOT run home (downstairs) to find those magazines
so he could try to sell them to you for ten bux each?  THE Lonnie Falk?
The man must be getting mellow in his old age; in Lonnie's case "mellow"
still means something considerably more hyper than the rest of us but
his greed, I mean avariciousness, I mean clear understanding of the
value of his products to the most rabid of collectors seems reduced.
