New Magazines

We've been feeling a little flush in the library, and have managed to subscribe to some new magazines (actually, we've had a little money from various titles ceasing publication).

New subscriptions

Colors [Photography / Fashion]
Critical Studies in Television [Film and Television]  - online only (actually a journal)
London Review of Books [General] 
Printed pages [General - art and design]
Selvedge  [Textiles]
Tank Magazine [General - art and culture]
Tate etc [General - art]
V magazine [Fashion]

At the present time, Kilimanjaro, seems to have gone quiet (in fact the last issue came out at the end of 2011, but they assure me it is just resting rather than dead).  If we see a new edition, we'll get it on a one-off basis.
