  • Good Words was a 19th-century monthly periodical in the United Kingdom. It was established in 1860 by Scottish publisher Alexander Strahan. Its first editor was Norman Macleod. After his death in 1872, it was edited by his brother, Donald Macleod, though there is some evidence that at this time the publishing was taken over by W. Isbister & Co. Good Words was directed at evangelicals and nonconformists, particularly of the lower middle class. The magazine included overtly religious material, also fiction and nonfiction articles on general subjects, including science. The standard for content was that the devout must be able to read it on Sundays without sin. Good Words was known for illustrations by such artists as John Everett Millais and Arthur Boyd Houghton and engraved by the Brothers Dalziel. In 1863, Norman Macleod wrote that the magazine had a circulation of 70,000. In the following year, it advertised itself as having a monthly circulation of 160,000, although that number is probably exaggerated. In 1906, Good Words was amalgamated with the weekly Sunday Magazine, and published in that format until 1910. (en)
