    You can get all the back issues on CD now. Takes up a lot less room and is a whole lot easier to do a search for information.

    National Geographic Vol. 175, No. 5 (May 1989) has an excellent article on the tepuis, 'Venezuela's Islands in Time'. It has some awe-inspiring landscape photography and some good CP photos too; Heliamphora tatei, Drosera roraimae and Brocchinea reducta. It is well worth searching through your back issues to find, or rummageing around in thrift stores for.

    I don't know the 60s-70s CP article, but I would be interested in knowing the Volume, No. and date if anyone knows.

    Cheers
