    • View this to read being human comfortably on a smartphone or tablet, with special links for easy navigation.
    • Download and view this format on a PC or laptop for extra large type viewing.
  2. PDF of magazine layout (click to open, right click to download)
    • With this page-by-page file of the printed magazine you can view, download, copy text, and print individual pages.
  3. Online view of full magazine layout ("Adobe Publish Online")
    • Use this on a larger-screen device (laptop or PC) to see the print magazine laid out on your screen.
