LOOK BACK LIBRARY
Are you ready to donate your magazines?
Origins: this journey began in September 1986 when I bought a thrasher magazine with Mark Gonzales on the cover. I’ve been collecting magazines ever since & over the years have developed a deep sense of wanting to preserve this form of communication. In 2015 I took on a pet project to improve the skate magazine library at launch – community through skateboarding. That process led to multiple partnerships with other magazine libraries & collectors around the world. I was quickly swimming in doubles & the idea occurred to me that I should create a platform to build a myriad of other libraries from those duplicates.
Aspirations: through your magazine donations, it’s our intention to work diligently to fill holes in the collections of our collective members & to seek new locations to house future libraries. Are you ready to donate your magazines?
