PLY Magazine’s purpose is to serve as a kind of encyclopedia of spinning knowledge A stamp of the current moment in spinning time, as well as a record of the evolving line of knowledge stretching out behind us. Each issue is printed on quality paper with a printable spine so that, well into the future, you’ll be able to easily access the information within. Issues are themed so we can dig deeply into a topic, get to its core, explore different viewpoints and issues, and learn all we can about it. In the interest of diversity and a never-ending quest for knowledge, we go out of our way to find new and interesting things, old and important things and delve as well into things we might take for granted. How it works, why it works, where it comes from, who’s doing it: these are the things we’re interested in — the things we ask our writers to explore.
