Chess magazines

Magazines are generally published on a regular schedule and contain a variety of content. Magazines are meant to be read, but they're also a visual experience. You might not notice all of the work that goes into creating a magazine layout that looks fantastic, but you definitely notice if it's been done poorly. Magazines can appeal to a general audience but many are targeted to a specialised audience. I recently downloaded a copy of a magazine produced in Memphis, Tennesee (USA) which I found intriguing:

'Chess Advocate, a full-colour digital magazine devoted to chess - but a magazine unlike any other. This brain-child of Mississippi resident Dwight Weaver combines old school drawings and pop-art with today's electronic publishing technology, to create a unique feel and texture'www.chess  central.com
