Janus goes digital
Posted: August 22, 2012
15 months after the closure of the Janus shop and five years after the last Janus magazine was published, Janus Worldwide has just launched its first new digital publication.
Encore Janus is a series of downloadable magazines focusing on a popular theme or model from the Janus past. Each issue features full-page, restored images of every surviving photo in the archive, many of which are appearing for the first time and retrospective articles about how some of the most iconic images in CP history were created.
Tarquin Sergeant of Janus explained: “We’ve been thinking carefully about how to best make our archive content available. We felt that a series of themed, PDF magazines would be the perfect vehicle to release all the surviving images and tell some of the amazing stories behind their conception. We wanted to produce a package that would complement the original magazines and provide those that know the material well with something new and unseen.”
Now fully established online, Janus has a large selection of vintage spanking magazines available to download. The organisation has recently undertaken a huge project to catalogue all its surviving prints and negatives from the last 40 years.
Encore Janus 1 is now available to download from www.janusworldwide.com/store/
