One of the greatest benefits of being a member of the Paperweight Collectors Association is that a copy of the publication "The Annual Bulletin of the Paperweight Collectors Association, Inc." is included in your annual member's contribution. The Bulletin, as most members call it, has been continuously published since 1954 and each issue has contained articles, pictures, and discussions of all aspects of collecting and appreciating glass paperweights. Every issue contains the contributions of collectors, Artist/Makers, and dealers from around the world. Since 1954, over 720 articles (and paperweight photographs too numerous to mention) have been provided to our membership and to museums and collections around the world.

The 2015, 2016, and 2017 digital editions of the Annual Bulletin of the Paperweight Collectors Association, Inc. are now available to PCA, Inc. members. To read them online or download a copy, click on the appropriate cover image:
