We’re delighted to confirm that every issue of the modern run of Janus and Februs is now available online. To celebrate this milestone our hardworking archivist Jon Rayworth has created databases for both magazines. These databases allow collectors to search for their favourite models and photo stories and identify which issues they appear in. Jon has even included details of the magazines in which photo stories were re-visited!
The Janus Excel database can be downloaded by right clicking on the link below and then choosing the option ‘save link as’ or ‘save target as’.
Formal photo stories only began in Janus 13 which is why the database starts with that issue. If the database is viewed in Excel the drop down arrows in the black subject bar allow users to search for a specific issue, model or photo story. To re-set the database after a search, just click on any arrows in the subject bar coloured blue and scroll up to select ‘All’. Every magazine, model and photo story will be visible once again.
The Februs database will be available later this week. Eventually databases covering all the stories and authors that have appeared in Janus and Februs will be created.
If you experience any problems using the database or have any feedback you can drop Jon a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
