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.

Who said that? I must've missed the memo. I haven't heard anyone saying the recession is over.

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.

I can't even imagine actually referencing a magazine while cooking. When I need a recipe, I just google it. I have a few really nice cookbooks that I look at occasionally, but it's just much faster to look it up online.

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.

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.

I agree with all of this. Although magazines do generate a lot of waste and it takes vigilence not to have them pile up all over, I enjoy browsing through them and collecting/saving articles. Gourmet was a good one...
