The Winter 2008 issue of American Numismatic Magazine has arrived, sporting a new look.
The first issue published from the society's new location at 75 Varick Street in New York, the magazine's layout and look was redesigned by Rocco Piscatello. The society's web site has also recently undergone a redesign. It's a nice, clean look which maintains the high standard for color images throughout.
The magazine is now perfect bound, giving it a squared edge which has the title and issue number printed on it, all the better for shelving in one's library.
The featured articles in this issue are:
- "Truth and Plain Dealing" The Fate of the Archer Huntington Collection of Spanish Coinage by Robert Hoge, Andrew meadows and Ute Wartenberg Kagan
- "Better Late Than Never Newell Manuscript Finally Published
- Maximum Effort The ANS Moves to Varick Street
- Coin Collecting at Cambridge The Fitzwilliam Museum Department of Coins and Medals
The regular Departments include From the Executive Director by Ute Wartenberg Kagan, Library news by Elizabeth Hahn, Current Cabinet Artivities by Robert Hoge, From the Collections Manager by Elena Stolyarik, Book Reviews and Recent News.
One book review by Oliver Hoover covers A Pocketful of History by Jim Noles, a book on the U.S. State Quarter series mentioned earlier in The E-Sylum.
The magazine is a welcome addition to my library. I enjoyed reading all of the articles, and was delighted to see the article about the Fitzwilliam, which reminded me of my delightful visit there during my summer working on London. One needn't be an ANS member to get a subscription to the magazine.
