PUBLISHER, but are scanned from my private collection.

SUMMARY: This is a square bound black-and-white digest self-published by the editors and focuses on teddy bear collecting. While the photos may be black-and-white, they are printed on crisp paper(not newsprint) and are excellent quality. This is a well done publication, though it almost certainly suffers the same problems as Indy comics because of the lack of color. There are a lot of artist profiles and a token pattern in the back. If you're a die-hard arctophile, I believe it would be useful to you. I especially liked the article on repairing a very worn teddy.

They have a website: and back issues and subscriptions are still offered.
