"Traffic East" Now Offers Audio Features on Web Site

By Joyce Kryszak

Buffalo, NY – It would be hard not to notice a copy of "Traffic East." The sophisticated literary magazine splashes across news racks with sumptuous, visually appealing photography and graphics. But there's a new version of the magazine that hopes to appeal to your auditory senses.

Where there is art there is passion. Traffic East publisher Mark Dellas offered the quote once to explain his vision behind the stylized magazine. It debuted in 2001 as what Dellas likes to call a kind of "visual New Yorker."

Those who have read it or even just seen it would likely say the formula works. The luscious illustrations and photography beautifully compliment the editorial and even advertising content. Now, Dellas has added a new dimension -- audio.

"Traffic West" is one of three internet offshoots from the original publication. Traffic East can be accessed online, while Traffic Now offers overflow material. But Traffic West is all new. It features music and profiles of local musicians.
