Letters & Journals Magazine Update

Kathy Forss at DaisyMaeDesign has been busy with more of the magazine's layout. She also recently won the design contest for the MMPA (Minnesota Magazine and Publications Association) Excellence awards. Way to go, Kathy!

In this picture, you can see a sample page of the Table of Contents for Letters & Journals. Next will be a sample copy of the cover. Isn't this exciting?

I love this design- the fonts, the white space, the small images that go with each feature. I also love how the L&J logo goes at the bottom of the page near each page number.

The feature stories and departments are still being defined so the titles you see here are not necessarily what will be here for the premiere issue (although some of them will be).What would you like to see included as a feature story or recurring department? Anybody?

Very pretty! Stylish and contemporary with just the right amount of nostalgia.

I'd love to see a "Featured Letter Writing Campaign" in each issue where a topic is presented and the recipient of the letters is a public person. For example, letters to the Postmaster General with suggestions on how the USPS could better promote letter writing. Or letters to a favorite world leader who isn't ones own. Or letters to authors. Each issue would have the new topic and then a selection of letters that were sent for the previous issue's topic.

I like your idea! I will add that to my list of running articles.

I love the layout of the TC page; it would definitely draw me further into the magazine.
