Good to see the McWades back. I used to snarf the art director's copies regularly at my first job in the early '90s. Much of what little I know about design I learned from B&A. In particular, the makeovers were great for developing my eye.

He has a book out republishing the early stuff. He's good, but by the issue it's damned expensive and he's a little to busy patting himself on the back.

When I was a regional manager for Kinko's Computer Services ten years ago, B&A was a required subscription for many of the designers I knew. Even a no-talent like me could follow their well designed instructions. To me it was like getting my National Geographic Explorer mag as a kid. I could not wait to try out the issues next projects.

Best darn pagemaker how-to ever. Glad to see them back in biz. Wonder what software they're covering now.

B&A is still very adobe-centric (only now it's indesign instead of pagemaker, thank god), it still has a very sporadic issue schedule (despite its claim of "bimonthly"), and is still indespensible.

It was the stuff back in early 90s!
