The December 2010 issue of Antique Bottle & Glass Collector was our first issue as the new publisher. We are honored to have the opportunity to continue this fine publication and to serve the bottle collecting community.
We would like to thank Jim Hagenbuch for his stewardship of this publication for the past 26 years. Jim has done a great job promoting our hoppy through the medium of this magazine. It is our commitment to you that we endeavor to do our best to continue in his well-established tradition.
You will find that many of the benefits of this magazine that you know and love will remain constant. You will be able to enjoy the same great columnists Jim has featured for years. Some of the changes that you will observe include a new layout and design. You will also see an increase in the number of color pages, as well as features from new contributing authors in the months to come. We look forward to exploring together, the many facets of bottle and glass collecting that this great hobby has to offer.
We welcome new subscribers, writers and contributors. If you have any comments, suggestions or contributions, tell us! We would love to hear from you.
We will continue working for you, both in the publication of this magazine, as well as providing you great offerings of quality bottles, flasks and blown glass through American Glass Gallery. Our goal, as always, is to provide you with the highest level of service and professionalism and to do the very best job possible for you, our friends and fellow collectors.
John Pastor, Publisher
