     GFX News comes from the same creators as GIF News, another 
  magazine launched back in November 1988 that followed the same
  format.

     Each page of the magazine is stored in .GIF file format.
  GIF viewers are widespread and freely available for all types of
  computer systems. This issue of GFX News uses screen resolution 
  of 640x480 pixels in 256 colors.

     Each .GIF file represents one page of the magazine. They are
  ordered in the following way, so you know what page you are reading.
  You can also tell the month and year of the issue you are reading by
  the filename.
