About Wax Poetics

"The fandom driving the magazine is infectious, and the best pieces are simply essential.... A large part of Anthology's draw, as with "Wax Poetics" the magazine, is how gorgeous it looks: Many pieces come with lovingly reproduced album covers and 45 labels, arrayed neatly like so much recordcollector porn."
--The Onion A.V. Club
