Since 1952, the ICA has published over 460 Newsletters which gradually changed into the magazine it is now, Concertina World. Earlier issues consisted mainly of one or two sparsely typed foolscap size sheets, gradually growing into the current issues of over 40 A5 pages plus a Music Supplement.

The collection is almost complete from 1967. Newsletters from No 400 upwards are not included in this collection, and are available to ICA Members as originals, while stocks last.

From 2007 the Newsletter continued as a magazine of the ICA and is published under the name Concertina World.
See Concertina World for further information.
