As you're probably aware there have been some changes in the antiques market over the past twelve months, what with our father (Alan Carter) producing his very last antiques Price Guide, Jimmy Johnson cancelling the Sydney and Melbourne Great Antique Fairs and the AAADA cancelling their Sydney show... and now it's time for us to make a few changes, too.
As everybody knows, the publishing industry is being hit with lots of extra costs. This has resulted in the need for us to do a re-vamp with the magazine side of our business, resulting in the move to publish Antiques and Collectables for Pleasure & Profit twice a year instead of quarterly, beginning with the Winter issue, which has been rebranded Winter/Spring 2013 (Issue 49). Issue 50, which is now due to be released in early December, will be the Summer/Autumn issue.
The content of the magazine itself won't change at all - it will still be completely brilliant and the best antiques and collectables magazine in the world! And just to prove it, Issue 49 has some fantastic features, including ceramic Deco figurines, Aussie militaria, fakes and reproductions, Bohemian glass, buried silver uncovered, Japanese prints, jelly moulds, collecting tiles, wartime silk postcards, Lowestoft pottery and a review of some of the most stupid things that have ever been said to antique dealers! We've also got a bumper feature for What's it Worth, a 6-month calendar of antique fairs and events and all the regular features.
The Winter/Spring 2013 issue of Antiques and Collectables for Pleasure & Profit is on sale in your local newsagent now!
