Martha Stewart Special Issue Magazines

Since 1997, Martha Stewart Living has distributed up to six special issue magazines each year: suplemental issues based on a single homekeeping, entertaining or culinary topic that are not included in the subscription. These issues were available on newsstands only, or by phone order. Below is a description of the special issues that have been released so far, excluding the first Martha Stewart Living Weddings issues,which began publishing once a year in 1995. (These were the seeds for Martha Stewart Weddings magazine which began publishing as its own entity in 1999 on a quarterly basis.) Most of the issues below are now out of print but can often be found at online markets, such as eBay, Etsy or Amazon.

Wonderful list! FYI, Kmart handed out copies of the 2002 Holiday Baking issue free (I think day after Thanksgiving). The only difference was the cover. I can send you a picture if you like.

You did a really great job with this post. It is a great resource for us magazine collectors.

Your best bet to finding any of these special issues is to use eBay and purchase them through a private seller.
