Back when the Raid for the Cure event was going on, I was contacted by a writer/journalist named Per Landin asking for more details.
He said he wrote for a Swedish print magazine called Level, and wanted to do a story about the Raid for the Cure for an edition of Level presents World of Warcraft.
Of course I said yes, and provided screenshots and answered a list of interview questions about the event, and sent it off and thought nothing more about it.
Okay, I did think, “How neat it is that someone out there sees what gamers can do together that is positive, and wants to share that with a larger community.”
Still, a Swedish magazine is not something I’m likely to find here in the United States.
At least, not in the bookstores *I* frequent.
Maybe I need to find a better class of bookstore.
I had an email today, out of the blue, from Per Landin, thanking me for replying, and letting me know that the article he wrote was published in the most recent edition of Level Presents WoW, and sending me a few pictures he took of the magazine in question.
I had no idea how awesome the feature was going to look. Now, I really wish I had some way to get a copy of that magazine, just because it looks like it’s really, really pretty. And because it would be awesome to try and pick out friends I know from the pictures. Even though I was there!
I don’t know what it is, maybe I’ve still got a bit of the luddite in me, I get a kick out of holding a printed book or magazine in my hand instead of browsing web pages.
Anyway, here are some of the pictures Per Landin provided me. No, I can’t read Swedish, but it’s just the absolute neatest.
