Hmmm.  How did I miss this?  Wait.  Were they in the middle of the big ballroom?  I think I did see their table, but didn't realize that there were freebies available.

Pretty much in the middle of the ballroom near Paul Erano's table.

Just downloaded the sample December 2017 issue. The magazine looks quite nice. The graphic production values and layout are high quality. I will be subscribing also. I want to support this new effort and help build momentum for its success.

He wasn't there when I got to the show.  Okay, a LOT of tables were empty on Friday, but I *also* overheard someone ask if Paul was there, and got told that he was stuck in New York because of the weather.  

And I was only there for part of the day on Saturday, and then had to drive home. 

But yeah, I think I did walk past their table after all.

It's a lifestyle magazine and as such would not be something I'd be interested in.  There's no style in my lifestyle and I like it that way.  I do, however, wish you luck with it and hope that it's a big hit and you all prosper.

Looks interesting. Your writer on Philadelphia missed an opportunity to point out the many writing implement historical spots in Philadelphia, including Esterbrook's original location on Arch St., the longtime location of Turner & Harrison on first Buttonwood and then Spring Garden St. (the factory is still there, but now it's four stories), Leon Isaacs locationsn, and other turn-of-the-century steel pen makers, etc...  :)

 

I keep thinking I'll put together an address list for New York City of past important sites. Most are clustered downtown on a small number of streets. (Maiden Ln, John St., Broadway for the most part)

 

Good luck!

Congrats on the new venture; I wish you well.  Make sure when people refer to you, they capitalize the 'T'.  The mag's name, as seen without the capitalized 'T', as in this thread's title, combined with 'husiast' sounding like some Eastern European translation for 'house', leads one to conclude that the nature of the material is not at all what you are offering.

Any updates on this magazine? I subscribed but havent received any issue(s) yet.

Edited to add that their web page seems to be gone also.

Any weekend viewers in-the-know if this magazine is still viable, or has it folded? Thanks.

This magazine had so much promise! Really loved it! The concept was wonderful! But it appears to have dissolved into oblivion. Such a shame.

Pity if this folded. It seemed like a nice magazine. I think there was some confusion in the theme though, as "Pen" was in the name but it seemed like it was more about analog stuff in general.
