Our team wanted you to know that
Issue #1 is now complete, and we plan to launch it in the Fall 2012. We
have been working very hard at getting this magazine right. We have
secured an ISSN International number to increase the awareness of the magazine,
uniquely identify GIMP Magazine from others, and to assist with searching
and cataloging this publication.
Here is a "sneak peek" of what is arriving in Issue

A Call for Content for Issue
#2 & #3
And we wrapped all of this in
a professional, yet cool looking layout magazine design where any artist
would feel comfortable presenting their works within, and we are
attracting some outstanding artists and photographers who are all
exclusive to GIMP.
We are quite pleased with how this issue turned out and
we look forward to publishing on a quarterly basis. Issue #1 is exactly
50 pages using a traditional 8.125" x 10.75" magazine style layout
that is best viewed using facing page mode. We will be releasing a
standard screen resolution PDF, an elegant PDF viewing experience through
www.issuu.com/GIMPMagazine and we also have an ePub version already in the
works. All of this will be accessible from our brand new website
We will be posting some magazine previews during the
month of August on Google+
(https://plus.google.com/u/0/116869971719072318131/posts ) and Twitter
(www.twitter.com/GIMPMagazine ) and our website.
It would be amazing if you could help spread the word.

blog post entry, Googl+ post, or simply forward this to people who would be
