The publishing world has dealt another blow for shelter mags. I received my October ’08 issue of Home Magazine today (slow getting here due to my address change), accompanied by a letter telling me this would be their last issue. Coming in its place? Woman’s Day. Hardly comparable, if you ask me.
First, House Beautiful bit the dust…but I could deal with that because I was never rabid for it. Then Blueprint disappeared before my back issues had even started collecting dust. That was a huge letdown, because I loved Blueprint. Home has been one of my favorite magazines for years, so I’m starting to feel a bit like a queen without a country.
So help me gawd, if they shutter Domino or ReadyMade, I will be forced to exact some sort of vengeance. A girl can only take so much.
