Yes, thats so true. Thank you for mentioning this. It was yet another decision which MODE made that was perfect, and which made it such a wonderful magazine.

I have to say that of all of the threads on the forum in 2007, this one - and more importantly, the interview it concerns - was the most important. That interview answered questions about MODE that I had had for the past ten years, and it listed every single element which made the magazine so special. Plus, by showcasing MODEs greatest pages, it offers a clear example to anyone producing either a new magazine, or a new ad campaign, or even a plussize model doing a test shoot, how to get it right.

It happened once. It can happen again.
