Articles are mainly published in the Antiques and Art in Queensland magazine.  In this magazine as well as in the World of Antiques & Art, glossy advertisements record and promote GN Olsson Mastercraftsmen products and services.   The year 2010 marked a new beginning as their craftsmanship is displayed in the pages of the Australian Period Style journal.  This magazine showcases with grandeur, their niche of expertise – heritage, antique and period style interiors, furniture and home wares.  Only photos of items GN Olsson Mastercraftsmen have made, restored or conserved are included in publications.
