I wanted to answer the most common question asked to me either via email / blog / forum …
How do you guys keep finding all this new material of Veronika?
The answer is actually quite simple:
And if you think about it it makes total sense …
Veronika was in her modeling prime at the time that true broadband internet was still in it’s infancy. The bandwidths were horrible and it was hard to find any website posting images online with resolutions of greater than 500 pixels. At the same time, printed magazines were still very popular and available at every street corner. Publishers were still relying on the sale of magazines as their prime source of income and were using the web merely as an advertising tool to try and get you to buy their magazine. Their strategy as well appeared to be that they would post certain “teaser” pics on their websites and then go publish a completely different set on pics in the magazines themselves. And thus the source for new pics.
Over the years the index contained primarily pics found posted on websites because those were “USUALLY FREE”, easy to find, catalog and post. Finding images in magazines is a whole other issue however. It does require and outlay of cash and knowing exactly which issue Veronika was published in can be a struggle. However in the end the challenges are all worth the reward!!! There are several of us on the forum who are constantly on the hunt for new magazine material and we have been quite successful over the years to find new content (as can be seen from the magazine count in the collection). I suspect that between us we still have several hundreds of new pics which have yet to make an appearance in the index.
However, we do have a plea for finding a Scandinavian based Veronika fan who would be willing to help us track down some issues from Finland, Sweden and Norway … we know that those are as of yet untapped and have been extremely difficult to come by on any of the standard selling platforms like eBay and eBid etc. So if you are willing to help, please drop us and email.
