Batt, James R. (ed.) / Wisconsin Academy review
Volume 20, Number 4 (Fall 1974)
[Cover] Wisconsin Academy review
There is much discussion these days about the health of the magazine business. Rising costs for printing, paper, and postage threaten to crimp already struggling budgets past their limits. And periodically, too, a major publica- tion dies, adding to the rumors that the whole industry is dying, a thing of the past. In the midst of this turmoil, the Wisconsin Academy Review, with this issue, completes Volume 20. And now, just as in 1954 when Volume 1 was published, we depend heavily upon the generosity of many people to "make ends meet. " For example, thirteen authors have contributed their time and expertise to provide the manuscripts which are found on these thirty-two pages. None of them has re- ceived anything more than our hearty thanks and a few copies of the magazine. The Escher Foundation kindly waived the traditional reproduction rights fees for the two M. C. Escher prints found on pages 2 and 5. And on pages 7, 9, and 11 are illustrations by Chris Sternberg, whose services I am sure we will be requesting again., Readers who have suggestions for stories they would like to see included in the Review or manuscripts they would like to have considered for publication should feel free to contact me. With the continued support of Wisconsin writers, artists, and readers, you can be assured that the Wisconsin Academy Review is indeed alive and well. -Monica A.
