Wired Magazine During The Early Days of Internet Communication

  • Posted: 10 July 2009 02:52 PM

    Hey everyone, I have a collection of Wired magazines up for auction, 64 issues of technology between the years of 1994 and 2003. These magazines have been stored with care in my home, and are in near-new condition.


    As a working digital artist, illustrator and technology consumer, I realize the great wealth of information and inspiration these magazines can provide in bringing better efficiency and convenience to your work and life. I researched this vast archive to discover many great tools and items I’ve added into my home studio. Here is an outline of the collection:

    1995 - January through December
    1996 - January, February, March, September, October, November, December
    1997 - January, February, March, May, July through December
    1998 - January, March, April through December
    1999 - January, February, March, June through December
    2000 - January through December

    My favorite part of these magazines is learning how to use products I already have in a new way, and the discovery of many useful products from companies such as Apple, Sony VAIO, Blackberry, iOmega, Epson, Adobe, Macromedia, etc. This is not just a showcase of inventions, but a timeline of their effect on society, entertainment and pop culture. As an illustrator it can be a great source of general ideas and information towards your next painting, especially if you work in science fiction.

    I hope to take time to drop by the auction and consider a purchase of the collection, thanks for viewing.
