Finding the right magazine for you

You can perform a basic search by typing your search query into the search box. However, this may, unfortunately, bring up inaccurate search results. The best search method is to use ” ” (quotation marks) around words you are searching for as this will result in an exact match.

Read the information below for help finding specific magazines from our site but if you have any questions, please get in touch and we will be happy to assist you.

How do I find a magazine from a specific month or year?
For the exact date of the item you are looking for, search (ideally with ” ” around words for an exact match).
For example: “September 1982”
Some searches may not be found even though the item may be available in our store.
An example would be: “Golden Globe 1996″ (with ” “). This will not bring up any matches because those words do not appear in that exact phrase in our shop. Instead, searching for Golden Globe 1996 (without ” “) will give better results. (Alternatively, you can browse manually in the relevant category for the magazine you require).

How do I find someone featured on the cover of a magazine?
If you are looking for a magazine cover featuring a particular person, type (with ” ” around words), for example: “Marilyn Monroe”.

Are the magazines new or used?
Many items are brand new, but some are used (“second-hand”). Most magazines we sell are now long out of print, so please refer to the magazine description in our shop where we specify the exact condition. We check all magazine pages to identify the condition and will clearly state any defects.  Each magazine in our shop is graded according to condition. (See below for grading).

How do you grade magazines?
We grade magazines according to condition. We thoroughly check the magazine for signs of wear/damage and we specify the condition for each item. Many magazines are in excellent unread condition. However, some magazines do show signs of wear and are graded accordingly. See below for a general guide to conditions:

  • New unread condition: brand new, unread condition
  • Excellent condition: unread, excellent throughout
  • Very good condition: almost as new, with minimal signs of wear
  • Good condition: read condition, light finger creasing, light wear
  • Fair condition: tears, creasing, generally well-read
  • Poor condition: tears, creases, very well-read, may have some pages loose/missing
