Elektor Electronics Publishing
PO Box 1414
Dorchester DT2 8YH
tel: +44-1305-250995
fax: +44-1305-250996

Elektor - published in the UK and covers ALL aspects of electronics. It seems targeted to hobbyists so usualy they do not publish construction articles which require "leading edge"" or hard to find chips. Has a good balance between analog and digital. It's only drawback as I see it - no access to article related material (source code, PCB images etc) through the net/BBS because it seems they base part of their business on selling these.
