The Catch...
The UK's former juggling magazine is now (mostly) on line at www.jugglingmagazines.com - I hope you enjoy it!
Cheers

Super Mike, thanks.

I glanced through the first few pages of issue #1, and lo and behold there's Lindsay Hurd (misspelled in The Catch) who AFAIK is still working in touring circus. And there's Shaun Bridges, an Archaos-grade BMX expert and massive nutter who nearly immolated a crowd in a basement in Bath at around that time. How the fucking fuck so many of us survived the rampant negligence and recklessness of that time, I do not know.

Well done, and thanks. (Sorry for not answering the email... Didn't have any spares).
"To view it full-screen click the icon in the bottom right-hand corner." Does that mean the magnifying glass icon? 'Cos for me, that just maximises the magazine within the viewer, but doesn't make the viewer fullscreen. (iPad 2, iOS 9.2)

On PC (oldversion firefox 16) it's same .. bottom left glass-magnifies once which is still too small; bottom right, "fullscreen" won't work.

I've made a change which might help for older browsers for Issue 1. Does http://jugglingmagazines.com/?page_id=117 work now? If so I'll copy the change across all the pages.

Fullscreen's perfect now.

( The little zooming window appears, but it's still too small to read; but that doesn't matter, as fullscreen works well now. .. I'm anyway blaming my old machine, constellation and configuration. I'm just not updating everything all the time. )

Thanks!

On desktops there's a square-with-gaps icon in the bottom right hand corner for full screen - it looks like it doesn't exist on mobile devices. I'll have a play and see if I can work something out...

Hopefully it's better now...it's working well on all of my (non-apple) mobile devices

And on my iPad too. Thanks!

That's brilliant, thanks Mike.

For your "Other Juggling Magazines" page there is also an archive of Jugglers world" 1981-1998 online at http://dev.juggle.org/history/archives/jugmags/index.php (hopefully it won't get obliterated by IJA website modernisation). It doesn't have the search capacity that the juggling.org archive has, but has a limited index and is slightly more complete

Thanks Miark - I've added a link

Wow.

If someone want to scan them I'm happy to host them!

Great work Mike, well done!

I recognise the covers of issues 12 & 14 so I should have issue 13. I will check what condition my copy is in. What format do you need a scan in? I'll see if I can find somewhere to scan it myself, if unable I can pop it in the post to you or pass it along to you or one of your staff members at the BJC.

Excellent, thanks Orin.
I've been working with full colour 300dpi jpgs if you can rustle them up - otherwise post would be good too.
Cheers

...and now complete rebuilt to (hopefully!) work better on mobile devices

Thanks Mike - really enjoyed that trip down memory lane. I didn't realise I had previously owned quite so many issues.

Were some of those ones that I had donated? some of the (coffee) stains looked familiar!

mike.armstrong - - Parent

I've had donations from a few people, so those could well be your coffee stains - thanks very much for them!
