A Little Rubber History
RSM’s history goes back to 1978 and the publication of the book, The Rubber Stamp Album by Joni K. Miller and Lowry Thompson. In 1980, Lowry launched RubberStampMadness from her home in New Caanan, Connecticut. Two years later, she sold the magazine (at that time in a 20-page newspaper format) to Roberta Sperling and Michael Malan. Lowry dubbed the new editor, Rubberta Stampling, and the name has stuck.
Since 1982, over 175 issues of RSM have been published, first from Ithaca, New York, and now from Corvallis, Oregon. The newsprint format morphed into a glossy magazine format, with artwork in full color. Two rubber stamp art books have been published along the way. First The RubberStampMadness Album of Art, next The RubberStampMadness Album of Scenic Art.
Our goal—since the very first issue—is to provide a creative forum and a helpful resource for rubber stampers worldwide.
Many stampers have made friends through the pages of RSM, and we count many friends among our readers and advertisers.
