"It was my vocation as a photographer and my passion for the classical guitar that inspired me to create, three years ago now, our magazine. I wanted it to be a magazine of elegance, one that would pay tribute to guitar-makers, as well as to the history of the instrument and its cultural milieu. The very first issue of Orfeo came out in February 2103 and was only ever intended to appear as an Internet magazine, available for free so as to ensure easy access for aficionados everywhere. The compliments and, in particular, the numerous requests that poured in have led me to envisage a printed version of the magazine, since many readers of Orfeo lament the difficulties involved with reading it on a screen, slow download speeds sometimes hindering access to the pages, and the fact that it cannot be enjoyed anywhere, anytime, unless the reader is in front of a computer or tablet. So now you have the possibility to order a book, encompassing the first five editions of Orfeo Magazine, which will be available, from now on, in two different formats: a free digital version on the Internet; and also in hard copy. Many thanks for all your encouragement." - Alberto Martinez
