Unfortunately, print is dead, recession or not.

I think we are going to see a lot of classic publications make the switch to 100% digital media.

Personally, I hate magazines. I got a Gourmet magazine subscription as a gift one year and I don't think I ever really read any of them. I looked at the pictures, scanned an article or two, and then they went in the recycling bin. I always felt like it was such a waste of paper.

Shame about Gourmet. I expect that's neither the first nor the last.

i LOVE Gourmet!

most often i would tear out recipes i like to use later, but i have kept 3 complete issues - ones that feature Budapest, Montreal and Toronto.

and i'll buy these last two issues, just like i bought the last two issues of Domino.

*sigh*

i keep - and often reference - my issues of La Cucina Italiana. one of the greatest compliments i ever got in my life is when a friend told me that my pasta sauce made with spicy italian pork sausage was almost as good as her nonna's!

I still read a lot of print magazines. I like them. It's easier to concentrate on the articles when it's on paper.

I liked this mag, too. It's sad that this is folding.

I was at the grocery store today flipping through a "beauty" magazine...and then I realized that it was strictly devoted to plastic surgery. They had an article about different shaped butts you could surgically obtain.
Wavy, curly on the ends, 2C.
Coarse to medium textured, porous, dry, and lots of it.

I feel bad for those who will miss it, but have you checked out Gourmet and bon apétit's collaboration, epicurious.com?

It's fab.

I have, but I'll still miss the mag. I have copies from my Godmother, from the 1970s, that I still enjoy. The tone of the writing was so....cordial.

I also think the current photography is splendid.

I'm sad about this.
bummer. i like gourmet.

guano: clearly i'm the only one who thought this was going to be an origami thread.

I have noticed that the local job market has picked up, but that's it...

I don't know if the recession is over or not.

I do know that I had trouble getting steady work starting Oct 08. Things were BAD until about 2-3 months ago.

They're not back to normal, but they're much better.

My point being, I started to feel this recession before most did [before the layoffs, etc.] And it's looking up now, in my sphere. So if my experience was any kind of indicator before, maybe it is again now?

I do agree that the folding of mags and newspapers is a separate issue, something that was a long time coming, exacerbated by the recession.
