The Second Issue of The Primgraph is now available!
Our featured sim this month is the dazzling Coeur region, which replicates pre-Revolutionary France with great artistry. Not only is it beautiful, it is an open and welcoming place – deserving of the title ‘A Place for the Heart’.
Our other material of general interest includes an interview with Erasmus
Margulis, Earl of Carradale and leader of Relay for Life’s Team Caledon, by
Miss Saffia Widdershins; on a related note, Mr Ederyn Clowes continues his
hobby of recording Second Life world ephemera with an article on Caledon’s
Relay for Life campsite.
Sir JJ Drinkwater forwarded to us a selection of material from the factual book London Labour and the London Poor, by Mr Henry Mayhew, which we here reproduce. In addition, our continuing feature ‘Exiled on the Grid’ finds Mr Denimore and his errant nephew exploring the Amsterdam sim, and ‘Clio’s Mirror’ reflects on the year 1891.
Our Arts and Culture section continues with its emphasis on the written word (writers on visual arts and music are encouraged to step forward) leading with the thrilling continuation of The Mysteries of London. We are pleased to present Dame Kghia Gherardi’s description of her ‘Essential Poets’ series, which she has graciously permitted us to print here; and as before, Sir JJ Drinkwater reports on The Caledon Library’s newest acquisitions. Miss Henrietta Sowle’s charming remarks on cookery are also continued, and I have reviewed for you the novel The Shanghai Tunnel by Sharan Newman.
Miss Zadira Barzane returns with an overview of some autumn fashions, and we are pleased to introduce Miss Ceejay Writer, whose plea for courtesy and friendliness on behalf of New Babbage is sound advice for the residents of any sim. We have also received Mistress of Propriety’s thoughts on deportment, a topic that is, alas, rather opaque to many – that is, until now.
Our Technology section includes Mr Roberto Viking’s article about Nikola Tesla, pioneering electrician, and we are also delighted to present Miss Siri Woodget’s article reprising her Caledon Library exhibit on Lady Lovelace (also known Augusta Ada King).
How do I get my copy of The Primgraph?
Well, there are various ways to get The Primgraph!
Best of all, you can join our Subscribe-o-Matic group. These are located at historical and steampunk sims across Second Life (for example, you’ll find ones at all the Caledon inforhubs). And if you can’t find one in your favourite sim, why not ask the owner to install one?
You will also find them at the Prim Perfect offices in Oliveto.
But if you prefer to read the magazine online but not inworld, there are choices too. Firstly, there’s the wonderful Calaméo system, which allows you to moves smoothly through the pages, giving you the feeling of reading a real magazine. You’ll find Issue 2 here – and please do leave a comment!
But, if you like to download your magazines to read as you commute to work, or in the bath, or wherever, you can also obtain a standard pdf for downloading and printing.
