The Abbey Newsletter: Bookbinding and Conservation is issued eight times a year and has about 1050 subscribers. New subscribers automatically receive all issues published in the current year, unless they request otherwise. All subscriptions expire on the last day of the year. To initiate or renew a subscription, send $35 (full-time students $20), or the equivalent in � sterling to Abbey Publications, 320 E. Center, Provo, UT 84601 (801/373-1598).
No paid advertisements are accepted, but any notice that is appropriate and newsworthy will be printed if there is room for it. Written contributions and bits of news are welcome. Claims for issues never received, or received in damaged condition, will be honored within a year of publication.
The Abbey Newsletter is selectively indexed in Art & Archaeology Technical Abstracts, the Institute of Paper Chemistry Abstract Bulletin and Graphic Arts Literature Abstracts (RIT). It is not indexed in the usual periodical indexes because it is a newsletter, but each volume has its own index, free to subscribers. All issues but v.1#2 are in print.
The Editor encourages readers to copy and pass around any article or issue of the Newsletter; but before copying any part in numbers larger than about 20, they must obtain permission from the Editor. This is mainly to ensure that recent major revisions are incorporated before redissemination, and that permission of authors (if any) is obtained.
Abbey Publications is a nonprofit tax-exempt corporation (tax ID #87-0436104). Its other publication is Alkaline Paper Advocate.
