The Baum Bugle







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), 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.
