Single back issues* will continue to be available as paper copies (while supplies last), but each complete back volume** will be furnished only as a single PDF. We expect pricing for the back volumes to be similar to the current pricing for back volumes of Cross and Cockade (USA), which will also move to a downloadable PDF format. There will also be an adjustment to the current prices of individual back issues to accommodate ever-increasing postage costs while keeping the price of four printed issues close to the current price for a printed volume so members who wish to backfill their collections of OTF with printed volumes rather than PDFs may continue to do so.
PDFs will be downloadable as ZIP compressed files; on extraction you will have a self-contained PDF-A file with the full issues, including images. When you order a back volume, you will be sent a link and password (tied to your email address) where you may download your purchase. This link will expire after 30 days.
We appreciate your support and ask that you not share these downloads, in order that we may remain solvent.
* An Issue is the quarterly (Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter) individually-bound publication you receive.
** A Volume is one complete year (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter Issues) of Over the Front.
