Happy 50th birthday SPD! It's a pleasure to be guest-editing the site this week, I'm looking forward to moving out of the familiar surroundings of the magCulture site and posting in a new environment.

To provide some structure to the week I'll be asking "Where do magazines come from?" This question arises because few if any of the big publishers are launching new magazines at present. Yet we receive several new magazines each week at magCulture.

I've identified five common sources for these new publications and will share one of these each day. There'll be plenty of images, some succinct text and plenty of links for you to discover more. I hope you'll see some things you've not seen before and that you'll end the week as excited and intrigued by the magazines as I am.
