 “Newsmag” goes back to the earliest days of the Guild. Its original editor was the Founding Father of the Guild, Geoff Coles, and his widow, Anne, continues it as a necessary service to the Guild and a living tribute to Geoff.

Like many publications it began as a typewritten duplicated document with drawings and sketches done by hand and no photographs. Gradually quality improved, and photos appeared (in stark black and white - grayscale came later).
