"ARACHNE" is a very high quality publication both in content and production. It is my own lofty goal to have my own "ARACHNOCULTURE" gain the readership that will allow for such nice printing.

I highly recommend that all serious hobbyists join DeArGe and receive "ARACHNE" even though it is a German language magazine. Martin mentions the status "ARACHNE" has reached among European arachnologists. If its influence indeed spreads across Europe, and DeArGe is the "world['s] largest tarantula society" as claimed, I would think that it is time the journal published an English edition so it is accessible internationally.
