I prefer books overall, but some of my favourite books are volumes of bound periodicals. Apocalypse, Richards Almanac, Magic Menu, Magical Arts Journal, Epilogue, Chronicles, Hugards Magic Monthly, Stanyons Magic, Ibidem, the Phoenix, the Jinx, Heirophant, Kabbala, Pabular etc.
I have all these periodicals in Hardbound form on my shelf and they are wonderful to keep going back to.

Your list has me wishing I still had my books Smile I agree that these bound ones are some of my favorite. Trying to figure out what exactly the illustrations were illustrating was half the fun to me!

I like magazines because they feel 'fresh' and new (I miss you Antinomy Smile). I like books for going in depth. My favorite magic periodical though would have to be the self-published booklet, before the age of the internet when you'd get things mailed to you Smile
The best we can is all we can ever do Smile

Thanks for responding. J.k. never has for some reason, but his reasons are his. I'm happy to talk books and periodicals anytime.

I like books because people who go into my room believe I'm smart (Or that I can read) which is usually better than what they think after I start speaking.

Periodicals don't stand up as well, literally. A poorly managed book case with magazines lying sideways and/or bowing is less of a statement. I suppose I could invest in bookends.

Outside of that, I don't really care as long as they're interesting.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.
