After the success of such periodical masterpieces as "I love Horses" and "The Joy of Broccoli" DeAgostini have decided to tackle a much bigger subject area and are to produce "The Internet" as a weekly magazine for people who don't have access to computers or the World Wide Web. The Magazine will be available from all good newsagents until about issue 27 where it will then revert to direct debit subscription only.
Marketing executive Chris Hanson said of the decision "I thought about all those people in the UK who do not have access to The Internet either on a computer, a phone, a games console, their television or even their fridge and I realised they would never have the thrill of a Google image search for pictures of canadian aquatic mammals and stumbling across a picture of a ladies parts."
"Each issue we will be taking a selection of pages from the web and reproducing them in high colour glossy print. Animated gifs will be represented by those little grainy holograms that were popular in the 80s."
The magazine will also be interactive including blank pages with a Wikipedia logo at the top for readers to create their own wiki and partially complete entries where they can change things to make it look like Tom Cruise is a good actor.
Readers will be able to share in the anonymous fun of the Internet by taking part in a postal forum where week by week they can mail an opinion in and when it is argued against reply on a postcard with the words "Lol U R N00b!!!!111! + U R Ghey!"
DeAgostini have tried to ensure the true Internet experience by packing the magazine with an many leaflets and adverts as possible. Readers will also have the option to have hundreds of badly spelled postcards delivered to their door every day offering them cheap "V14Gr4" or "h0t S3x" W1th a "Russ14n Brid3".
Each week a 90 page glossy magazine will be accompanied by a fold out poster detailing a different google images search. "The Internet" will build into a valuable collection to any household still stuck in the 20th Century.
Issue 1 comes with a free ring binder, Google index cards and dividers, an error 404 "Page Not Found" Bookmark, the first 3 card inserts of "Teh Internet chat Speak guide - Lolz", and a flicker book of notorius video favourite "2 Girls 1 cup". Priced at 99p (issues 2 onwards 3.99)
