This is the May 1994 issue of the English Mac magazine, MacFormat. I especially like it because it presents the world of Macintosh to a new audience. Despite the Mac being 10 years' old at this point, it was still new to a lot of people. For many, it was their first experience of GUI computing. Many would have had exposure to command line-based systems in school or at work, but the GUI was new.

In this issue, there is an in detail article on HyperCard as well as reasonably priced alternatives to the expensive 800-pound gorillas.

Top DL: MF12_img.sit, is a StuffIt 3.5 archive containing a Disk Copy 4.2 disk image of the magazine's cover floppy disk.

2nd DL: above are the untreated scans (jpeg, 300dpi) of this issue's pages. 108 in total.
If you have a comic-book reader installed, change the filename's ".zip" suffix extension to ".cbz" to view the content in book-reader form.

3rd DL: MacFormat Issue 12 as PDF, reconstructed from above scans, zipped. Use MacZip to extract if using a classic Mac OS.

4th DL: MacFormat Issue 12 is a PDF reconstruction of this magazine, using the scanned images reduced to 1600x1200 and 72dpi. OCR has been applied so that the text can be (mostly) used. The pages have been manually straightened too. The version has been to Acrobat 4. It is 70MB big. I have saved it in an ISO image so that it could be uploaded.

The cover floppy disk contains:

Architecture: 68k PPC
