Advice on collecting, comprehensive studies of the various series she wrote, the latest news and reviews, snippets of information and articles on aspects of her life: this makes up just a small part of what has become a colossal magazine.

Journal No. 9 was the first to have a full-colour cover, specially illustrated by the Noddy artist Robert Tyndall to mark Noddy's 50th birthday. Every issue since has come with a splendid colour cover, and recently all the issues preceding Journal No. 9 were reprinted with colour covers.

Some issues are available to buy as back issues. For more information on buying the Journals as well as other books and guides, please feel free to browse our Online Shop.
