In a move designed to diffuse the growing row over the "organic bifurcation process" set in train by its decision to publish separate North-Central and South-Central Dorset editions of its Central Dorset Magazine, publisher Threadbone Magazines Ltd have issued a limited-time free download of the two images which adorned the first editions of its newly separated publications.
The row which surrounded the bold and still widely-contested move served to obscure the beauty of these especially commissioned images and the publisher hopes that by making them available in this generous manner will mollify the critics and win new friends for the ever-popular publication. Spokesperson Tad Blunt (replacing an indisposed Ms Hardly-Tonguetied) said "We recognise that there has been some dissent and some hurt but frankly we don't understand it. Don't these people realise how lucky they are? In any even we are following St Augustine and healing where there is sickness and uniting where there is division. Depending on where you live in Dorset you can download one or other (but not both) of the images. Let's see if that shuts everybody up"
Especially crafted as wallpapers for the iPhone 6, 6+, 7 and 7+ (though the less fortunate Android community can also benefit from the offer), the images by Bailey Stourpaine (recent winner (under 85s category) of the Annual Melbury Osmond Photographic Society's Landscape of the Year Competition) can be downloaded directly from Threadbone Magazine's off-air online digital portal or via the links below (registration, subscription and credit card details required).
