Foolish Magazine - International Issue # 0



Recommended Posts

Starting a new era with the early international issue of Foolish Magazine. 

It was not easy, it took a few years of growth and refinements but in the end we succeeded.

The first English-language issue of Foolish Magazine was born. The first hopefully of a long series.

For now all together, we have taken the first step, the project is still young, the road is still long and there are still many things to fix.

But now it's time to enjoy it.

I really enjoyed reading this. I also appreciate the use of empty space in the layout of the magazine. I understand it's an e-magazine but I wouldn't mind a physical edition at all! 😀

This is a perfect delight. I am so glad it has finally happened. Speaking as an art critic and a man who has spent much of his adult life with people who win design awards, I especially commend the magazine's graphic design. A great credit to Turin. Nietzsche was very favorably impressed by Turin, and when I look at this issue of Foolish Magazine, so also am I.

Thanks a lot for the beautiful words and for mentioning Nietzsche. All this is a reason to make an even more beautiful next issue.

wow. VERY cool! I do not actually speak Italian but can read it because I know Spanish and French. The earlier issues are even better.  Best of luck with the new edition!

This is a beautiful publication, thank you!  I feel that this deserves to be held in my hand instead of viewed on a screen - do you anticipate producing any print copies?

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
