Chess Advocate: Issue 9
Free Magazine Download
A special treat for all fans of the visual arts!
Here you can download the latest issue of the Chess Advocate, a full-color digital magazine devoted to chess - but a magazine unlike any other. This brain-child of Mississippi resident Dwight Weaver combines old school drawings and pop-art with today's electronic publishing technology, to create a unique feel and texture. New wave nostalgia, a peek into yesteryear, all made vivid with advanced .pdf techniques.
The right words may be difficult to find, but the Chess Advocate certainly isn't a "comic book" or "cartoon" - instead it reads more like a modern graphic novel. You get games with plenty of diagrams (no board needed), items of news and history, along with chess art and inserts at every turn. There are special numbers like the "Detective Edition," clippings and photos, tournament coverage, and more. Whatever its label, this new genre of chess magazine is sure to please!
The latest edition of the Chess Advocate (issue 9) includes annotated games, a theoretical article, amazing graphics and chess comics, along with links and news. In all, you get 60 pages of colorful chess in this one issue, and hundreds of pages in the whole collection. There's no better way to enjoy a chess magazine - and it's absolutely free!
