It's ironic, but right as people are getting used to digital magazines, I'm bringing back the print edition of xDev! Yet it is precisely because few people need print that this is economically feasible. In the old days I had to produce thousands of copies even if I didn't need that many. Print-on-demand is more expensive on a per-copy basis, but at least I can offer print subscriptions for those who prefer it. (Note that print subscribers will receive the PDF, too.)
subscriptions. That's for six full-color 6"x8" booklets, including postage.
At the moment, I'm only offering annual subscriptions (I plan to add sales of individual issues soon). Also, there's no automatic way to upgrade digital subscriptions to print—if you're interested, email me and I'll let you know the cost and procedure.
