EXCLUSIVE NEWSLETTER OFFER!
FREE AUSTRALASIAN POST MAGAZINE WITH EVERY NEWSPAPER PURCHASED
Paper World has made two exciting purchases recently: Firstly, a library collection of Australasians (which became the Australasian Post in April 1946) spanning three decades from 1910 to 1936. Our other purchase was of surplus newsagent copies of the Australasian Post that had been in storage since the 1960s. In mint condition and, as they say, untouched by human hands!
To celebrate these purchases, Paper World is providing, exclusively to our newsletter subscribers, an Australasian Post magazine free to compliment each newspaper ordered.
The Australasian / Australasian Post, which was Australia's longest running magazine until its demise in 2002, features a unique look into Australian life. Starting off in a tabloid newspaper format, the Australasian provided extensive coverage of the week's events both throughout Australasia and the world at large. Rural topics, sport, women's issues, news and current affairs were complemented by extensive photography and pictorials. It evolved into a colour magazine in the 1950s and was filled with Australiana, scandal, sensationalism, human interest stories and Aussie humour. The Post reached an audience of millions during the 60s and 70s and offered a colourful, if irreverent, look at Australian culture.
If ordering online, order and pay for the Australasian Post, then type "Newsletter Subscriber" in the comments box and we will refund the cost of the magazine to your credit card. If ordering by phone just mention you are a Newsletter Subscriber in order to receive this great offer.

PAPER WORLD'S MAGAZINE COLLECTION
Now the winter months are upon us, what better way to spend a lazy afternoon on the couch than flicking through a magazine? Not just any magazine however, how about a trip back down memory lane to when the Beatles first graced our shores, man landed on the moon, Prince Charles and Lady Dianna were married or when your pride and joy EH Holden was first rolled off the production line. Full of color and photographs, magazines can bring special eras back to life in a flash.
Here at Paper World, in addition to our collection of newspapers covering the past one hundred years, we have a very extensive range of magazines catering for every taste. From Pix to Vogue, Time magazine to Modern Motor we have everybody's interests covered. Politics, gardening, motoring, current events and fashion are just some of the topics our collection cover.
Our most popular magazines include:
Published weekly, Woman's Day has been a popular Australian women's magazine for more than sixty years. Indicative of the times, it moved from mainly housekeeping and beauty advice and the odd short story or feature article in the 40s and 50s, to a more liberal content during the 60s and 70s. More recently it is best known for its celebrity gossip and sensationalism.
Recognisable by its distinctive red border, Time was the first weekly magazine printed in the United States and is world renowned for its current affairs and politics, including detailed analysis of each region, from the United States and Europe to the Asia/Pacific region.
From the first Holden to the new Monaro, Wheels has always been one of Australia's most popular and informative motoring and motorsports magazines. From a review of the latest Falcon, to a comparison test of baby 4-wheel-drives, to a wrap up of the Formula 1 grand prix, Wheels covers all things on four wheels.
Famous for its serious current affairs and cultural insights, Life was cosmopolitan and sophisticated. Unlike some of its contempories, Life shied away from scandal and controversy in favour of serious current affairs and a more profound cultural and political analysis. This was balanced out with a strong focus on fashion, lifestyle and nature through high quality, stylized photography.
