The Austrian Philatelic Society Journal 'AUSTRIA'

Back to Austrian Stamps homepage

The Austrian Philatelic Society's Journal 'AUSTRIA' has achieved international recognition as the foremost English language publication on the subject [eg awarded 80 points and a Vermeil at London2015]. Over the years it has changed format from quarto to A5 to A4, covers from black-on-tinted-card to full colour on glossy, and production method from manual typing with glued-in pictures to wordprocessed PDF with embedded illustrations. For several years now, the illustrations have been inserted in colour although the Journal was printed in black/white - they came out better! The most recent issues have the Society's Newsletter in the middle, printed on yellow paper - and are in full colour throughout.

There are five cumulative indexes currently covering issues 1 to 202: an Index to stamp issues; an Index by subject; an Index of book reviews; an Index to 'APOs Abroad'; and an Index to Biographies of People on Austrian Stamps. A contents list is provided for later issues including those awaiting indexing. In these indexes the number of the issue of AUSTRIA is followed by the pagination after an oblique stroke [eg 123/45 would be issue 123 page 45]. 'IBC' means 'inside back cover'.

Occasionally fewer than the normal four issues appeared in a year, and this list provides the data to resolve difficulties.

Finally, here is a specimen copy as a 5Mb PDF file. As explained above it is in full colour - and is copyright © to the APS.
