The Camera Arts of today is not the same magazine as the Camera Arts
which was published from November, 1980 to July, 1983 by Ziff-Davis, who
also published Popular Photography. The current Camera Arts began
publication just two or three years ago and has no connection to the
original magazine except the name, and the fact that Jim Hughes, who
edited the original Camera Arts, writes a monthly column in the current
one. Considered by many to have been the most beautiful of all
photography magazines, Camera Arts gave up the ghost shortly after going
monthly. Its subscription list was taken over by American Photographer,
the predecessor of American Photo (and a far better magazine), which
began publication in June, 1978.

I have a complete set of the original Camera Arts, and no, they're not
for sale.  Er. . .how much did you say?!
