Until further notice, FPO will suspend its quarterly publication schedule and produce occasional issues. We appreciate all of our subscribers for your loyalty and contributions, and hope to offer future FPO's on when we can produce them on an issue-by-issue basis. There is still lots of content that we haven't gotten to, and the changing world of magazines needs a design advocate. Back issues of our first seven issues are still available for purchase, and fpomagazine.com will continue. We will also be keeping the discussion alive on our LinkedIn page.

Bestiary: A medieval collection of stories providing physical and allegorical descriptions of real or imaginary animals along with an interpretation of the moral significance each animal was thought to embody.
[FPO] is putting together our own bestiary, check it out here...
We are convinced of a strong need for a publication that focuses on editorial, design and production for magazine professionals who want to make their titles the best they can. A publication that's devoted to increasing the creativity, quality and value of your magazine.
The result of our conviction is [FPO]—For Publications Only. Every issue features profiles of influential publication designers and their process and product; advice on improving your creativity, productivity and enjoyment at work; and practical procedures for improving every aspect of your title — from the front cover to the back of the book.
We want [FPO] to be your resource for information and referral. There are reviews of new software and hardware, as well as creative evaluations of fonts and stock art sources.
Finally, we are hoping that [FPO] and this accompanying website will become a community resource where readers have access to exclusive content, such as expert advice, and shared font, photo and template libraries.
