We are pleased to announce the launch of our newly redesigned website. On behalf of all of us here at Antiques and The Arts Weekly, welcome! Since 1963, we have delivered essential information and breaking news to collectors, dealers and auctioneers. Like a first car, our old website served us well for the past decade and a half, but as technology moves us forward with this redesign we are now able to take advantage of the latest tools to more effectively serve our subscribers and collecting community. Our new website will continue to evolve and improve as we refine it.
Here are some things to check out:
Our new site, hosted by Celsius, a provider of open platform, multichannel publishing solutions for the print media industry, has been given a modern layout and design, that will be optimized to be viewed on multiple devices over the Internet in the next few weeks. You will soon be able keep up with what’s happening in the antiques world on your iPad at home, smartphone on the go or on your trusty desktop or laptop at work. In fact, if you are an E-Edition subscriber, this adaptation to mobile is already available.
We’ve reorganized our website to help you better find what you’re looking for - whether that’s breaking news, our cover feature story or our popular calendar for upcoming shows and auctions. We think you’ll find it a lot easier to navigate around our site, but we’re always interested in suggestions on how we can make it even better.
We made sure to integrate social media into every part of the site, so wherever you are you can share what you see with your friends and colleagues. We are also focusing more on multimedia, so images, videos and other multimedia content are emphasized to maximize our coverage. To comment on stories or build a personal archive of your favorite stories, simply register on the site by clicking on My A&A and follow the instructions there.
We encourage you to explore the new site, and although much has changed, all of the most popular resources that we have created over the years are still part of the site. Thanks to everyone who has participated in the site design and helped us to create the more connected, organized and social Antiques and The Arts Weekly website you see today.
