A family owned and operated business, Lovatts was established in 1978 by husband and wife team, James and Christine, with the birth of flagship title, Colossus. Three decades later with an additional 19 titles in circulation, both James and Christine are still very much active in the running of the company, however son, Patrick now oversees day-to-day operations.
Lovatts magazines provide much more than just a collection of puzzles. Popular editorials by Christine, contributions from readers, news, competitions and prizes have created a strong community of readers who associate the Lovatts brand with quality recreation.
Christine continues to produce her popular Cryptic Crossword Collection magazine. Her expertise at compiling these challenging puzzles has earned her the title of 'Cryptic Queen'. Read Christine's Wikipedia profile
Over the years Lovatts has proudly supported many humanitarian and community organisations including Red Cross, Life. Be In It, World Vision, MS Readathon, The McGrath Foundation, the RSPCA and Alzheimer's Australia to name a few.
