Not too long ago, both American Heritage and Invention & Technology stopped publishing. However, the are back again, thank goodness. I&T in particular was a very interesting magazine, which I'd read cover-to-cover. The reborn AH I have my doubts about; seems more ads than content.

Enjoy your summer. In the meantime, I invite your readers to check out my Low-Tech Times blog at http://lowtechtimes.com

The Low-Tech Times publishes short low-tech themed posts each weekday.

I understand that Invention & Technology will return in the Fall of 2012. The publisher is revamping the organization and finding new $$ to support publishing the magazine and creating a new website that will have the 25-year archive.

I&T was my favorite magazine. It's Nov 2013 and it's still not back. If anyone knows when they might come back, please email me: [email protected] In the mean time, I'll settle for back issues at a reasonable price.


Now Nov 2014, and still no sign of a reborn I&T magazine. Bummer.


Now Jan 2016, any sign of the rebirth of I&T yet? I'd rather have one issue of I&T to leaf through than all of the gossipy tabloid magazines put together!


Archives! And a new version of the magazine!



Hopefully this helps somebody else looking for this wonderful publication.

I was paid up almost two years in advance. Then nothing. No more issues were sent. Lost all my subscriptions .

I'm searching for copies for my collection. If anyone knows of a source or sources, please let me know. If you have a copy of the Fall 1997, Vol 13, Issue 2, I'd like to know what the cover looks like. Maybe send a pic or tell me the highlighted issue/article title/subject? Thanks much.

I and some other volunteers have just relaunched Invention & Technology with grants from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and Charles Koch Institute, and donations from 700 subscribers. Check out the first issue: https://www.inventionandtech.com/content/winter-2020

Archives of 27 years of the magazine are also now online: https://www.inventionandtech.com/magazine/archive

We are a Philadelphia museum and research library and in a recent inventory I came across some issues of Invention & Technology Magazine - fascinating reading but not directly related to our museum's focus. The issues are vol 2 (Fall 1986) through vol 14 (Fall 1998). Free for whomever can pick up or cover shipping costs.

I subscribed to this magazine in the 90s and still have some of them them in storage, never threw away a copy. So good to find this.
