Aceville's Special Projects department produces a range of annual bookazines – glossy publications that have a longer than-average shelf life. Distributed throughout popular retailers such as WH Smith, Tesco and Sainsbury's, the bookazines offer advertisers fantastic opportunities to extend their reach to crafters who desire collections of beautiful projects in one handy title.

The magbooks are also promoted with strong in-store advertising and investment in point of sales, ensuring a strong presence on newsstands. Aceville's magbooks appeal to a ready-made audience, thanks to its catalogue of craft titles, as well as attracting and obtaining new readers. Hot on the heels on the success of 2015's releases, Aceville is developing a fresh selection of magbooks, each one tailor-made to a specific audience. Accessible to new crafters, as well as those who are more confident with being creative, the publications not only look great on coffee tables, but are practical too.

The publications will appeal to all crafters, regardless of their niche, thanks to the high standard of the photography, projects and helpful hints included throughout the titles. Aceville has also developed an innovation within craft publishing – kitazines. These specially commissioned and designed glossy productions contain everything the reader needs to get crafting straightaway. The kitazines build on the increasing popularity of crafting, providing a one-stop-shop that can be enjoyed by all, no matter their skill level.

All bookazines and kitazines include in-depth technique pages and clear and concise step-by-steps, as well as advice from respected crafters and designers, elements that have become synonymous with Aceville.
