Crafts magazine launches new digital edition with complete archive

Crafts, the bi-monthly periodical of the Crafts Council, has partnered with Exact Editions to announce a brand new digital edition, featuring the complete 43-year archive of the magazine.

Over 200 issues of the prominent magazine’s backfile, as well as each new issue, are instantly available to subscribers via the Exact Editions platform, iOS and Android apps. Whether these be individual subscribers, or institutions including universities, businesses, colleges and libraries, they will be able to instantly access all issues, dating back to 1973, featuring over 20,000 pages of lively debate, in-depth features and stunning photography, says Exact Editions.

The new digital edition is equipped with the latest Exact Editions’ reader software and search technology so that users can get the most out of this in-depth resource. Digital subscribers can search across a specific issue, year, decade or the whole archive.

Exact Editions’ Managing Directer Daryl Rayner said about the archive launch: “Crafts Magazine looks fantastic on the new app, while the archive is a fascinating in-depth resource for individuals and institutions alike, which will prove invaluable to subscribers.”

Grant Gibson, Editor of Crafts said: “Crafts is concerned with the importance of making. From the clothes we wear, the house we live in or the bike we ride to work, the magazine believes a sense of craft should permeate every facet of our lives.”
