Traditional Kustoms was created by John Maurice and Carrie Brown in Los Angeles, California. Both shared publishing duties, and Mr. Maurice also handled social media and marketing duties. The magazine was dedicated to kustoms built in styles from the '40s, '50s, and early-'60s. It was by subscription only, printed on heavy paper stock in the "little pages" or digest-sized format, was 60-plus pages, and had minimal advertising.
Like other publishers, this title is one using a refined approach to publishing as print formats were on life-support while social media was ascending. The publishers used social media to generate interest in print subscriptions and provide access to more content.

The publishers did NOT provide net paid circulation data.
There were 10 issues printed from late August, 2014 through June, 2016. Cover images are complete for this title, and we are still seeking table of content pages.
The magazine was launched with a website and Facebook presence. The website www.traditionalkustoms.com is now defunct, but the Facebook page is still active.
