Download Update: So... apparently Sendspace links expire fairly quickly, and as I'm involved in significant multitasking, here's what I've done to make the mags available again. Issues 6, 7, 8 and 9 have been uploaded to's Still have to upload issue 7.5 celebrating URBALT, as well. We will send out a .zip file with issues 3-9 including the compilation&mixtape) via sendspace if its requested via energymail purplemag at (its a temp download link that does delete, making acting quickly once its received, advisable).

The print quality of our Lulu is questionable and Purple Magazine is currently looking for a better print on demand option that won't cause the staff to engage in print runs. Our first issue is currently available via Amazon in print but the price is inflated because it is printed through Lulu. We are currently working on making archives and newer issues available through a much more affordable option and hope to have this set by Fall '09 (with at least issues 6, and 7, available from print archives by that time). Our small staff gives much thx for your patience. You can download issues for free and print them for personal use [not for commercial use] if you wish.

You can find downloads of earlier issues at as well, but we have to re-work some layout issues with issue 2 before it's made available again. You can download it at Lulu for now but no print issue is available.

"Issues 1 and 2 will be re-added for download in the future. There was a formatting problem with issue#2 but we have the reworking of the issue in the plans."
