There are so many interesting topics described on that page. It makes me wish that I read Dutch.
The covers are quite nice too! I don't think I've seen any of the chromotypographs before.

I note that the web site indicates that copies are not available at the bottom but mentions prices
for printed and CD copies at the top. Have you considered putting them on DVD-R? I don't know
how large the files are but it seems unlikely that they are 300M per issue. Although rated at
4.7G, it is hard to get more than about 4.2G on a DVD-R. Ten euros for two issues would add up
quickly but if more could fit on a DVD-R, it might be easier to justify.
