Publication has always been a central activity for the Academy.  Our Journal is the primary means by which the Academy disseminates the results of its activities.  It is an academic publication containing research papers and notes on all types of pipes and associated research.



The annual journal is free to members for the years in which they have paid their annual subscription, but may also be purchased by non-members. The first price given is for members, the second price is for non-members. Prices exclude postage and packing.

To order: Contact Susie on who can provide full shipping costs and payment details.

The Pipe Year Book & Annales

From 1994 to 2008 the Académie produced a small colour publication with notes and short articles by its members. Some of the later issues of these Year Books (1998-2008) are still available. Contact Susie on for more information and current prices.













The Académie Annales were published in two languages – French and English – in a single volume and contain members’ contact details, reports from meetings and conferences, and details of any new publications.  The Annales are no longer produced but a small number of back issues are still available.
