The Skateboard Mag


The goal of this site is to digitally archive print skateboard media.

I'm still figuring out the best process to get clear scans without damaging the magazine.

Right now, I'm loosening the pages from the outer, glued binding to ensure a flat scan and minimal page damage.

The Skateboard Mag:
These are a little more difficult to separate because they're bound vs. glued. They're also a little wider and don't seem to fit standard scanners. I've had to use an exacto knife to get as close to the binding as possible.

There was a phase where I cut out some of the better pictures from some magazines and put them in a binder. I will call those out when they pop up and hopefully crowdsource the issue for scanning purposes.
