Timeline has come to an end after 14 years of publishing. For this final issue, we’ve gone back over the 83 prior issues and picked out 64 pages of things we especially liked and that are timeless. Printed copies of this final issue, #84, are available from the Foundation for Global Community. (Note: Because of the size of this last issue of Timeline, we have broken it into four PDFs for easiser downloading.)
