Harper Beat 37 was published in February 1989.

"By Issue #37, we were having a lot of production problems. We had grown to nearly 60 pages! This issue (cover by Robin Wood) was the last "digest" size Harper Beat ever printed. By then, the format of the content inside had grown to be pretty consistent with what you'd find in a Harper Beat today. The editor of the Harper Beat at that time did a lot of the cutting and pasting to put these 'zines together. We had entered the digital age and the individual sheets were created using Word Perfect and a daisy wheel printer. The pages where reduced and set onto Legal Size paper using the copy machine. It was February, 1989. We didn't know any better." [2]

Issue 38

Harper Beat 38 was published April 1, 1989.

"On April 1st, 1989 we went 8 1/2 by 11! Pam Spurlock did the cover. We had mixed reaction to the first issue. A lot of people had really grown to love the digest format. We could now go directly from printer to copier and production became a whole lot easier. Especially at 6 issues a year! ssue #38 was also the first issue with our new masthead, the familiar "fort" shape you see on all of our publications. You learn something new every day, eh?" [3]
