The magazine that developed into the Journal did not appear until May of 1963 with just three pages of duplicated notes. It quickly increased to 14 duplicated pages that were published quarterly, until it eventually emerged as a black & white B5 size magazine.
Ultimately colour appeared on the covers and on a limited number of inside pages.
The Journal changed size from B5 to A5 in the spring of 2009 with issue 183.
Full colour was introduced in the summer of 2012 with issue 195. Although there have been a few short breaks in publication due to a change of editors, the Journal is published four times a year, roughly in line with the seasons, although there was a break with tradition in 2017. Five Journals were printed that year, the annual competition was give its own edition! Any or all may be ordered from the back issues secretary.
The Society celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2018 and extra items celebrating this are already planned for the January and subsequent editions. The Journal continues to describe the activities of the Society and its members, along with 3D related articles.
