The Journal of Stained Glass

Since 1924, the Journal of Stained Glass has been produced annually by the British Society of Master Glass Painters to publish and promote research in stained glass.

The Journal's interdisciplinary approach to all aspects of stained glass has made it a valuable resource for historians, students and anyone with an interest in the medium as well as for designers, craftworkers and conservators. Featuring wide-ranging articles by recognized experts in the field of stained glass, each issue includes a provocative guest editorial and sections on: the history of stained glass; research and methodology; contemporary practice; and technical inquiry, as well as reports on stained glass at auction, prizes and awards, exhibitions, conferences, obituaries, and a comprehensive book review section. The Journal of Stained Glass is the only English-language publication to cover all of these subjects in depth.

The scope is increasingly international, with recent articles from or about England, Iceland, Canada, Poland, Ireland, Australia and the United States. It is circulated to individuals and libraries throughout the world. Themed volumes include the special issue, The Stained Glass Collection of Sir John Soane's Museum, the America Issue and the Scotland Issue.

Appearing since 2000 in a striking new design, each issue includes a minimum of 200 pages with over 100 colour illustrations.
