We have run a number of publishing projects, some as a part of other activities and some as stand alone projects.
These have included amongst others:-

The New Atlantis University of life published a number of correspondence courses, some large and detailed like the family history courses. In recent years a lot more has gone onto web sites, with a large number of specialist sites covering a vast array of topics, and more planned.

Picture libraries - mid 2006 will see at least one of a new range of picture libraries come online. Others in the series will have some you can get very large publishing quality super photos from, some with low prices or order prints of, and limited edition copies of art as well as other material. Some of these will be connected with the Worldwide Library others with a number of art based companies that are New Atlantis trusts. Some of these companies form part of a longer project to create trusts. This will also be linked to the writing projects, as illustration material for articles.
Part of this is to be be packaged under the new economic model to allow many more people to become partners in it and a range of compatible joint venture projects will open up associated areas we had been working on but not announced so far.
