For those planning an Italian Thanksgiving or just a fantastic meal for dinner one evening, I’m sure you will enjoy Condé Nast’s latest launch of La Cucina Italiana as a quarterly print magazine and website. Its arrival on our shores brings a good addition to the food magazines in the marketplace and brings a smile to a lot of fans of the culinary legend.

This beautiful magazine from Schumacher’s, the manufacturer and supplier that designs products for the  interior design industry, has hit newsstands for the first time.

Schumacher’s should be proud of its efforts, the magazine showcases the beauty of what they do in a most excellent way!

The Spectator, one of the world’s oldest, continuously published magazines (since 1828), had its first U.S. edition hit newsstands recently after starting a U.S. digital presence last year.

15 New Titles Hit Newsstands For July & August 2019…

It’s been a long, hot summer, sizzling with sunshine and great new magazines! So, if you were looking for dynamic reading material for your days beside the pool, July and August were definitely the months for it!

In the fall of 2018, a brand new print magazine was created called The Technoskeptic. At that point founder and publisher, Mo Lotman, said the magazine was not sold through Barnes and Noble or any national distributor. Mr. Magazine™ found Issue #3 (the first he’d seen on newsstands) and was certainly glad he did. The magazine’s mission statement is: The mission of The Technoskeptic is to promote awareness, critical thinking, and social change around the use and impact of technology on society and the environment. The magazine is savvy, very well-done, and totally absorbing. Welcome to The Technoskeptic!

A fashion and pop-culture magazine, Cool America strives to offer diverse and beautiful content that will bring people from all walks of life together. Editor in chief, Vaughn Eric Stewart, writes in his first editor’s letter: an inclusive America is a cool America. And the premiere edition of the magazine is certainly cool! Thank you for your beauty in both photography and content, Cool America; we welcome you to the fold!

As a way to refresh their ‘Worklife’ brand, Staples has launched a quarterly ink on paper magazine, along with a digital version, podcasts, live events, and a entire digital community, hoping to continue the conversation with its customers long after the ‘staples’ have been replenished. The premiere issue of Worklife includes an interview with author, Daniel Pink, talking about motivational mistakes and how to correct them; there is advice for the workplace and all that entails, from stress to keeping the peace;  and The Decider, which is a flowchart tool that, in the premiere issue, helps readers decide whether a particular meeting is a must-attend. It’s a great addition to the brand and Mr. Magazine™ is keeping this one in the office with him!

Well, autumn is right around the corner and Mr. Magazine™ is looking forward to meeting you again right here to discuss the great new titles for fall!

So, until then…

See you at the newsstands…

The First Six Months Of 2019 Gave Us 77 New Titles…

Continuing the normal trend of one year up – one year down, the first six months of 2019 show a slight decrease in new magazine titles. We have 77 new magazines for the first half of 2019 versus 105 titles for the first half of 2018. So, the year has begun with a deficit of 28 titles in comparison to last year. However, negativity does not belong on our radar when it comes to print, just the facts. And the slight decrease in the numbers reflects only those facts, no predictions. Because of course if Mr. Magazine™ is looking into his crystal ball, the future of print looks bright indeed. Always has, always will.

And while the numbers may be a bit short in comparison to last year, the creativity and innovation certainly wasn’t lacking. June 2019 gave us a new title that could fit into a cassette player, that is, if it wasn’t ink on paper. Day + Night is an intriguing look at the city of New York in the daytime on “Side A” and then flip the cassette-sized magazine over and on “Side B” you can visit New York at night. The minds of magazine makers are amazing! Welcome Day + Night!

PRINT IS DEAD. LONG LIVE PRINT.

This statement is on the RQ website. This new Philly-born title is one part magazine, one part collaborative art project, and one part social experiment. Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Heather Shayne Blakeslee says that this new magazine offers you insightful and provocative essays, profiles of local makers and artists, cultural criticism, fiction, poetry, and carefully-curated recommendations for getting the most out of life in Philadelphia—including a cocktail or dinner recipe here and there—all in a beautifully designed and printed magazine you can hold in your hands and settle down with on a Sunday afternoon, or argue over at Thursday night happy hour. And Mr. Magazine™ is thrilled to welcome RQ to the fold.

So, as we gear up for another long, hot summer, get ready for a Jumping July as the new titles are already lining up at the newsstands. But until then, please enjoy our beautiful June covers.

And as always, Mr. Magazine™ will see you at the newsstands…

April & May Brought Us 20 New Titles…

April & May continue the magazine excitement as 20 new titles are born on the nation’s newsstands.It’s been a wonderful Spring for the world of ink on paper! Check out the titles below…

From the Outdoor Sportsman Group, one of the largest media companies solely devoted to bringing the best in content and entertainment to America’s 80-million+ outdoor sports enthusiasts, comes a new title called Backcountry Hunter. The magazine focuses more on the adventure of hunting, rather than a set of impressive antlers. Backcountry Hunter covers all aspects of wilderness hunting in the western U.S., Alaska and Canada, with a particular emphasis on DIY adventures for the hardcore sportsman. While Mr. Magazine™ himself may not be an avid hunter, I am an avid magazine lover and this one is amazing!

The latest digital brand to expand into ink on paper, Bumble, the dating app, now has its own lifestyle magazine produced in partnership with Hearst Magazines titled Bumble Mag. The dating app has really grown into a social platform and may have felt the need to present a more tangible way for the digital site’s users to engage with the brand, but whatever the reason behind the print extension, Mr. Magazine™ says welcome to yet another cyberspace resident who has seen the light and realized the value of ink on paper!

A niche magazine delivering articles and photographs related to sports history, this new title, Sports History Magazine, focuses on the history of sports, not today’s live streaming or the graphic replays of gridiron heroes in real time, but an actual ink on paper magazine that captures the essence of some of the best (and worst) times in the history of sports. Founder and Editor in Chief, Gill Schor, is the entrepreneur whose own passion for sports history motivated him to fill a void in this very niche market. In fact, Mr. Magazine™ interviewed Gill in early May and we talked about this great new magazine. Check out the conversation here.

The long, hot summer awaits us and rest assured there will be a great collection of new titles to both fan the flames of the season and cool us off! But until then…

I’ll see you at the newsstands…

Entrepreneur and Shark Tank star Lori Greiner teams up with AMG/Parade to launch a new lifestyle magazine, Living Inspired.

From Jugular To Strung & Fleishigs 15 New Titles For The Month Of November…

It was an absolutely fantastic month for new magazines, and while many out there might think that is a bit of an overstatement, since we only had 15 new titles, Mr. Magazine™ says to that, take a look at the quality of the content. After all, quality, collectability and the experience is what print is all about in today’s world. And that is fantastic! Check out a few Mr. Magazine™ is highlighting here:

Jugular is quite possibly one of the most intriguing magazines Mr. Magazine™ has seen in a long, long time. JUGULAR: AN ANTIDOTE TO BOREDOM as the connection between heart and mind, and the fundamental elements of life itself. Jugular’s Letter From the Editors is a wonderful experience in and of itself, where the two founders and co-editors-in-chief, Maurizio Marchiori and Max Zambelli, begin the story where it ends, with the magazine’s death date, which is already written as five years from now. I’ll leave the rest of the story for you to discover as this is what magazines should be today – a storytelling and design experience.

And following that same stream of consciousness when it comes to the magazine experience, along comes a new title that just begs to be picked up from newsstands and of course, Mr. Magazine™ did not let one of his new friends down. Strung magazine has the tagline “life at the treeline” and this new outdoor magazine is is dedicated to living a mindful sporting lifestyle in the 21st century. With striking imagery and great storytelling, this is again the epitome of what print magazines should be in today’s digital world: An Experience!!

Enjoy the rest of our November covers and we’ll see you for a delightful December! Have a very, very Happy Holiday!

Until then –

October Arrived With The Beautiful Colors Of Fall & 15 New Titles…

From the burnished yellows and bronzes of Autumn to the beautiful varied covers of the new magazines this month, October was definitely a breathtaking 31 days of fantastic entertainment and information.

I was beyond excited to see two new titles that showcased their exclusive premier issues this month from the same publisher: Bed & Breakfast and Chateaux & Castles, two magazines that present humble, but fantastic, photography and great content in both. And isn’t it wonderful to see a publisher coming out of the gates with two new magazines in the race. Kudos to Colette Publications in Carson City, Nevada!

And along came a really intriguing new travel magazine themed around a single destination with each issue. The premier features Mexico City and is absolutely wonderful with riveting photos that are earthy and raw with the emotion of the region. According to the Kickstarter definition, where publisher Abby Rapport began the first issue: Stranger’s Guide is a nonprofit magazine redefining travel writing by bringing in voices from across the globe and giving a holistic view of locales. And it’s a great addition to the newsstands.

And of course, our other 12 titles are just as amazing. So, enjoy October’s offerings and we’ll see you in November for another bountiful harvest of new titles.

Until then…
