Winter 2007 Issue

"Place-based and Traditional Products and the Preservation of Working Cultural Landscapes," Winter 2007 issue

I thought the lead article in the most recent journal on authenticity of place was fantastic, and would like to distribute it to many of my colleagues. We just finished a charette on Daufuskie Island in South Carolina that dealt with branding, character, and all of the issues in the article. Is a digital version of the article available?

I enjoyed your Winter 2007 issue of CRM: The Journal of Heritage Stewardship. Diamant, Mitchell, and Robert's article mentions a new publication entitled, Stewardship Begins with People. Is the final report available? Where would I find ordering information?

It is always such a pleasure to see CRM: The Journal of Heritage Stewardship and Common Ground in my mailbox. Both are truly treasures! I hope you will always continue to print these wonderfully rich magazines.
