The Baum Bugle

May1959BugleAutumn73Buglebb-60-2-coverb The Baum Bugle is the official journal of the International Wizard of Oz Club and mails exclusively to our members. First published in June 1957 as four mimeographed pages, the journal is now issued three times each year (Spring, Autumn, and Winter) in a format of 40+ pages with a color cover. The Baum Bugle reports on many aspects of Oz, with popular and scholarly articles about L. Frank Baum and his writings, the life and works of other Oz authors and illustrators, bibliographies of early-edition Baum and Oz books, Oz films and stage shows (including the 1939 MGM Wizard of Oz film), celebrity interviews, and vintage Oz collectibles. Reproductions of rare images, photos, artwork, and ephemera appear regularly. Issues also contain reviews of new books, films, and stage shows as well as profiles of people, events, and news in the world of Oz. A Bugle subscription is included with annual membership in the Oz Club; select back issues and an index are also available for sale while supplies last.

  1. Where can I purchase a copy of the Winter 2018 edition of “The Baum Bugle”?

  2. Is it possible to access past issues of The Baum Bugle online? I’m wanting to read an article in Issue 28(3). Many thanks for any help you can offer.

    • I’m sorry but we do not have an online archive of back issues. I’m certainly willing to copy an article for you, if that helps. Write to me at Admin@OzClub.org. I also see it is available for sale for $8 from WonderfulBooksofOz.com if that’s an option for you. Jane Albright
