Inside History has a new name and a new publisher!

Traces Volume 1

Inside History and Executive Media are excited to announce that Executive Media has purchased Inside History magazine and will continue publishing a quarterly magazine focused on promoting and advocating Australian history. To be published under a new title – Traces – the magazine will be edited by Eden Cox, with Inside History former editor Cassie Mercer as consultant editor for the first six months.

Traces will feature new and groundbreaking research into Australia’s history and heritage, and feature engaging and inspirational stories about our shared past.

The collaboration is an exciting new chapter for both publishers, says Ms Mercer. “I’m delighted that Inside History will live on under a new masthead, and that existing subscriptions will still be honoured. Inside History had a lot of loyal followers and it was important to me that they receive the copies they have paid for. I’m looking forward to working with Eden to make Traces even more successful than Inside History, and it’s fantastic to see a publisher such as Executive Media believe in and back the importance of Australian history.”

‘I’ve always wanted to combine my two passions, publishing and history,’ says Ms Cox. ‘When I heard about the end of Inside History, I thought it was a great shame to lose a magazine dedicated to Australia’s heritage. My team and I have big shoes to fill, but with Cassie’s advice and expertise, we look forward to making Traces stand on its own and inspire its readers to take more interest in exploring this country’s history.’

The launch issue of Traces is now on sale from our online shop. Yearly subscriptions are also available for just $19.95 – visit our online shop to subscribe for yourself or as a gift.
