The new magazine service offers more than 850 titles including specialist and B2B magazines as well as more popular titles. With Blackwell’s historic strength in specialist, academic and professional markets the integration of upmarket magazine publications will provide even greater product choice for Blackwell customers.
Jessica Armishaw, head of online, said: “We feel that this is the ideal time to launch a new magazine subscription service in the run up to Christmas. Magazines make fantastic gifts, especially for that hard-to-buy-for relative. The site provides subscriptions for a diverse range of titles from The Economist, National Geographic, Country Life, Wired and the Spectator to the less familiar Selvedge, Nano and Decanter Magazine.”
The various categories including arts and culture, business and finance, career and industry, computers and technology, food and home, hobbies and leisure, lifestyle, motoring and transport, news and current affairs, science resources, women’s interest and even overseas titles.
Adding magazines to the diverse range of books already available from Blackwell Online further substantiates Blackwell as The Knowledge Retailer.
Many of the magazine subscriptions such as Time and Reader’s Digest are available on special offer and The Economist comes with a free gift. All magazines come with free delivery
