Are you an existing "Nagel" subscriber?

As a promise to the Nagel family, existing subscribers will receive any remaining issues of their subscriptions at no additional cost. These issues will be fulfilled as digital versions (PDF).

It is my hope, however, that most readers would actually prefer a printed copy of each issue and, to encourage this, I have a special reduced price for each "Nagel subscriber", to upgrade to paper for the remainder of their Nagel subscription. Please email me at for details.

Archive has always been a membership magazine, with articles written by and for fellow members. If you have anything you would like to contribute to Archive, even if you feel that your writing may not be up to scratch, please do get in touch. Archive does not pay for contributions, but you will, of course, receive a free copy of the issue containing your contribution. If you're a subscriber (and we hope you will be!), your subscription will be extended by an issue.
