Glasfax Publications

From 1967 to 1984, Glasfax issued a newsletter that was full of articles, research reports and snippets of information. In order to encourage an exchange of information, we have initiated a series of publications that include reprints from this treasure trove. These publications are intended to share some of the valuable information that has been presented in the newsletters over the years. The purchase of these publications goes to support the endeavors of Glasfax including development of further publications.
