'Heritage NSW' intrigues Emily Bronto

Bikwil is proud to feature 'Heritage NSW'

Heritage NSW

Now and then you find a generous organisation that will mail you every issue of its magazine for virtually nothing.  Sadly (though not surprisingly), there aren’t too many examples of such complimentary reading matter.  One of this rare breed is Heritage NSW, published by the Heritage Council of NSW.  This review is by Tony Rogers.

Postal Fever — Tony Rogers


Occasionally you come across a generous organisation that is willing to send you every issue of its magazine for virtually nothing. What we are talking about here are periodicals in the true sense of the word, where the emphasis is on information — and not on potential sales (as with catalogues posing as “bulletins” or “reviews”).

We know of course that a lot of sites on the Internet function as “free” magazines, and no doubt Bikwil will be referring to some of these in our Web Line column as time goes on. But with Postal Fever we want to concentrate on paper-and-ink mags.

Sadly though, there aren’t too many examples of such complimentary reading matter, which means that this is one column where we could really use your input. So help spread the good word on (near-) free subscriptions.

Here’s a free one to start us off.
