Working closely with our partners at This Old House Ventures, Bondi Digital is pleased to announce the debut of the complete archives of This Old House magazine, over 22 years of experience and information for DIY’ers delivered exclusively to This Old House Insider members. This Old House is the number one multi-platform home enthusiast brand, serving over 15 million consumers each month with trusted information and expert advice.
The archive collection is a trove of Canadiana: there are the historic covers, including some by Group of Seven members A.J. Casson, Arthur Lismer and J.E.H. MacDonald, and a celebrated cast of contributors, including Margaret Atwood, Farley Mowat, Joseph Boyden, Mordecai Richler, and even Lucy Maud Montgomery. It’s a Canadian who’s who of journalists who graced our pages, including Ralph Allen, Peter C. Newman, Christina McCall, Barbara Moon, Peter Gzowski, Trent Frayne, and June Callwood, to name just a few.
This is the first archive of its kind in Canada. It chronicles our coverage of every major issue in the past century: war, political upheaval, massive social change. You won’t find a better way to explore your country’s past, says current Maclean’s editor-in-chief Mark Stevenson, and better understand its present.
The Maclean’s Historical Digitization Project, made possible with support from the Ontario Media Development Corporation, came to life thanks to work by Bondi, a digital publishing company that created a searchable database of all our past issues. You can explore it by year, author, or subject. The archive is easy to navigate, whether you want to explore our extensive coverage of the Great War (a phrase that first appeared in Maclean’s), or you’re looking for a specific story, such as Margaret Atwood’s 1974 profile of Margaret Laurence.
Every week, the Maclean’s editorial staff will curate a new collection of timely recommendations. Happy reading. Happy Canada Day.
The first century of the aerospace and defense industry history, chronicled on nearly 500,000 pages of articles, photographs and advertisements, is now available in the newly-launched Aviation Week & Space Technology archive. Every page is contained within a fully searchable, living archive available for desktop, laptop and smartphone devices. Better yet? Free access is available to visitors through 2016, compliments of Aviation Week, in partnership with Boeing, which sponsored the archive in a multi-year deal.
“Aviation Week’s archive is a gold mine of inspiration and education,” said John Tracy, Chief Technology Officer, Boeing. “There’s so much to learn and enjoy in this authoritative and remarkably illustrated archive – it is literally the journal of the aerospace industry and its impact on the world. For Boeing’s centennial year, we aim to celebrate our rich legacy and more importantly inspire a new generation of aerospace visionaries. Helping expand Aviation Week’s content into a digital format is a great example of how we are achieving that goal.”
Bondi’s next generation technology recently debuted with Classic Esquire, which delivers 1,000 issues and over 50,000 articles. Among our recent improvements: a revolutionary embeddable viewer which empowers publishers to call any article in the archive, with no re-direct required. Completely responsive and mobile optimized, the viewer delivers your content instantly, and then returns readers right back where they started.
The Aperture Digital Archive is a fully searchable online resource containing every issue of Aperturemagazine since its founding in 1952. For the first time, users will be able to access all 220 issues of the magazine from their desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device.

Published six times a year for the past 110 years, and delivered to over 50,000 undergraduate alums of the College, the archive showcases Dartmouth Alumni Magazine’s rich history.
“This is big,” says Quadra Media CEO Don Hellinger. “Many of our back issues were in such high demand that they had been completely sold out, so now they just became infinitely available.”
For the first time, every one of the 650+ issues published over Cycleworld‘s storied 53-year history can be instantly browsed, searched and viewed in this exclusive offering.
