In 1941 the Council began printing a newsletter for members that became the primary tool for reaching a general audience who wanted to stay informed about the craft world. Within a year the unnamed newsletter developed into the magazine Craft Horizons.
The first official issue of Craft Horizons was published in May 1942 with 3,500 copies. The magazine, re-titled American Craft in 1979 became a major voice and leading professional publication. Bi-monthly circulation averaged 40,000 copies by 1979. It continues on as the leading craft publication to this day.
This collection contains the earliest issues of Craft Horizons magazine, published from November 1941 to December 1965. Digitization of the collection was made possible with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
