Founder: James Hyman (with the Guinness World Record for ‘Largest Collection of Magazines’).

“When James Hyman was a scriptwriter at MTV Europe, in the 1990s, before the rise of the internet, there was a practical — as well as compulsive — reason he amassed an enormous collection of magazines, the foresight that this was going to be something else, more than a collector’s dream....all about preserving and documenting the history of print.”

HYMAG is built on media industry-insider James Hyman’s life’s passion for magazines, HyMAG celebrates and credits the creator and the collector; protecting both the copyrights of rightsholders AND the treasure troves of donators (often industry professionals) - who share our determination to preserve and document the history of print.
