Blast from the past: So-En Eye 1979 [Added alternate DL link!]
My scanner is bitching, so I can't seem to scan my SEDA like I originally wanted. DX But so that I'm not empty-handed, here's a retro magazine scan. Here be some of my mum's surviving fashion-cum-patterns magazine from Japan circa 1979. According to someone over at either egl, tokyoagogo or fruits (I'm not sure which one, I've forgotten already 6^_^000), it's So-En Eye. But, because my sisters and I tore off the cover (besides tearing off other pages and ruining a good deal of the other pages with ballpoint ink, as you'll see from the first scanned page) while we were still very, very young, we'll never know. v=_=000 I'm actually amazed this magazine survived though; my mum has always told us that she used to have a huge pile somewhere, but then we began to move around a great deal. It's really sad that this is the only magazine I found rummaging through my mum's belongings when we moved more than 3 years ago.
I'll try to scan the black-and-white pages and the gorgeous patterns (with gorgeous 1970s art) next time, but only if someone here can give tips on how to remove the staples that keep the magazine together without accidentally ruining all the pages. I hate having to scan with the staples on since the magazine's ruined enough. T^T Thank you very much!
PS how the heck do you make thumbnails using just Photobucket links? O_o I never figured that out...
