Put 'em on eBay and post a link here, so everyone can take a crack at it. I might bid as well.

Hey Carol :) You thought about it yet?

I would gladly make an offer, but I have no idea what quantity/quality where talking about here & I'm afraid to make a complete fool of myself when doing so (I can't even think of the value of a single issue to be honoust) ;-) Ebay seems like the perfect solution! But please, sell the 80s & 90s issues separately (per decade, not per issue) since I'm mostly intersted in the 90s issues ;-) You can still include an all-in offer.

Please can you email the link onto this post so everyone is aware of it. Thanks :)

If you are thinking of setting up an eBay account, note that there are sellers' fees. Both eBay and PayPal. U&lc issues don't go for much (somewhat of a hard sell). And their non-standard size is a negative factor in regard to shipping. They are what you might call a "give-away."

But if you decide to partake, best word of advice: don't close an auction on a full moon. . . or during holidays. Or for that matter Fridays or Saturdays—web traffic drops dramatically. For some reason Sunday night through Monday morning is prime time and it just drops off from there on, with Thursday afternoon as endgame. And if you don't believe that, monitor the daily usage statistics of Typophile (ain't nothing ever going on here on the weekends—not sure what that reveals about type designers/typographers).

I can always ask my mom for ebay tips, she's hooked on it ;-)

ill sans

is she buying or selling?



BTW: I have an issue of U&lc up on eBay every week.

FYI: In it's short period of reign ITC had a literal monopoly over the type industry and treated type designers like s**t. ITC was so arrogant "it" didn't get digital type and DTP. 1987 was the signal year and they were soon to be suddenly out of the picture. It took them years to finally figure it out.

She's buying, but forced to sell as well in order to finance her purchases ;-)

Anyone an idea if it is worth a lil? Maybe... someone interested? :)

Hope someone is still reading along,

Very best, Matt
