Built on History

Archetype’s portfolio of brands dates back to 1863.

Founded in 1898, Sunset provided the perfect companion for those looking to migrate to the American west. Sunset eventually became the archetype for today’s food and lifestyle magazines, introducing readers to guacamole, ranch style homes and Yosemite National Park.

During the American Civil War, Sightline’s Army and Navy Journal launched as a forum for the exchange of military strategies back in 1863. 150 years later Sightline Media remains a stalwart companion for armed services personnel, including the defense, federal and cybersecurity industries.

HistoryNet’s nine magazines launched during the latter half of the 1900’s as a way to remember, embrace and debate historical events around the world.

Regent LP, a Beverly Hills, CA-based private equity firm, formed Archetype as a home for consolidating these cherished properties.
