Description

Personal Computing was started by David Bunnell (who also published PC magazine, PC World and MacWorld). Premiering with the January / February 1977 issue, the magazine targeted the computer consumer and continued publication until some time in 1990. Initially a bi-monthly publication and then a monthly beginning in January 1978, the premier issue's memo from the publisher addresses "A computer lies in your future", "Today's personal market", and "The end of the kit?". Volume numerals varied between integers and Roman numerals. The binding changed from "saddle stitch" to "perfect binding" with the February 1983 issue.
