This is a fabulous magazine.  I hope you will continue publishing it, and even consider having it hit the stands more often.  I was very impressed with the accessiblity of the articles, and the fact that some of my favorite art journalers were featured.  I think this is the best art journaling magazine yet!  Traci Bunkers article was wonderful!  I also enjoyed the bookmaking articles.

Keep up the good work!

Finally a publication that satisfies my needs. I've been purchasing card making and scrapbooking magazines and others trying to find all the special issues that cover art journals, bookmaking, and journaling in general. I'll be able to save a bunch of money and now have a publication that focuses on what I really want to know.

I purchased the premier issue and hope that you will continue publishing more!!! Thanks - Dianne Blake

I purchased this issue and I love it.  The clear instructions, the great pictures; it is a mix of inspiration, instruction and a warm, friendly invitation to create.  I've got a stack of office supplies drying thanks to the Jacqueline Newbold article.  Now, I'm trying to decide what to do next??!!

Thank you and I hope this will be a regular publication.

I received the Premier Issue of PAGES as a Christmas gift from my DIL.  I've read it cover to cover more than once and each time I pick it up I want to just hug her and then hug her some more!!  I am learning more and more with each page I turn and the inspiration is oozing into my brain and making me itch to get back into my little art room!!  PLEASE keep these publications coming!!!!  As soon as you post a "Subscribe to" for PAGES, I'll fight to be first in line!

This magazine is amazing! I was so excited about it that I purchased it in both the digital and print versions! I keep it in the tote bag that I take with me everywhere, and I've looked at it over and over. I hope this publication will become a regular offering. Thanks for all the fabulous inspiration!

Just purchased this magazine and I love, love, love it.  Wish I knew that you were going to publish a mag such as this cause it is one I would like to submit to.....future project.  Thanks for being on top of the bookmaking/journaling community.  Can't wait 'til the next copy hits the stands.

How can I buy this magazine in the UK?

Is Cloth Paper Scissors PAGES going to be available to purchase as a subscription?  I already purchased a subscription to Cloth Paper Scissors, but I'd like to also purchase a subscription to PAGES, and I can't seem to find a place to do that, including the Interweave website.  Please let me know how I can support the magazine via buying a year's (maybe two) subscription, and keep up the amazing, fantastic, wonderful, and inspiring work!

I'm totally confused. Volume 2 of Pages is out - (I'm looking at the cover of it on a blog) - yet the Barnes and Noble here doesn't have it, and as of this writing, I don't have the option of ordering it here either. Not only that, I've not received an email about it, nor is there mention of the new volume in the current issues of Cloth Paper Scissors or Studios. I loved the first volume. I'd like to get a copy of it.
