Along With the Showers, April brought 70 New Titles to the Newsstand…20 With Promised Frequency…

The beauty of Springtime, in large part, is always the fresh, new buds that Mother Nature gives birth to and then nurtures with her showers and warmer temperatures.

April saw major publishers doing the same thing with their brands, giving birth to beautiful new magazines and cosseting them with the care and concern that only a parent can.

A total of 70 new titles hit the newsstand for April and 20 of them were with regular frequency. Out of those 20 newborns, 5 of them were delivered from large-scale publishers that show no fear in the face of cynics who still decry the value of print in today’s world. Print is on the rise; was there ever any doubt?

From National Geographic’s ‘History’ to Bauer’s powerhouse, ‘Simple Grace;’ the big houses are once again inking up their printers and truly having a good old-fashioned ‘print’ revival. Meredith launched ‘Parents Latina;’ Smithsonian has decided to take quarterly ‘Journeys’ and Rodale is educating us on the ‘Organic Life.’ What more could a magazine lover ask for? Maybe to see the beautiful covers?

69 New Titles For March – 15 With Frequency…

Niche distinctiveness is the only description applicable to the new launches for March. From frequency to the special editions; the unique and singular magazine reigned supreme.

This trend is becoming the norm for the magazine industry as it recognizes the perfection of its own excellent ability to seek out the audience’s interests and provide the relevant information they need to enhance their magazine experience.

While most of us have had a ‘Frozen’ February and had to ‘Sift’ through quite bit of snow and ice; new magazines have kept right up with Mother Nature’s upheavals. From Disney’s new children’s bi-monthly magazine, Frozen, to the epicurean delight of Sift; new titles offered a warm haven to escape to during a cold winter month that for most of us went beyond the mere chill of wintry winds and cold temperatures.

February 2015 saw 65 new titles hit newsstands, with 16 of those launches promising regular frequency. Specials were once again diversely niche, offering everything from March Madness to The Sound of Music. Cooking and eating healthy remained a strong voice in new magazines and also book-a-zines devoted to notable topics such as The Civil Rights Movement, Science & Entertainment.

So, I hope you enjoy the beautiful covers for February 2015 and are getting ready for spring renewal with warmer temperatures and sunshiny days and more new magazines to discover in the marvelous month of March!

Awesome Numbers For August: 72 New Titles – 20 Promising Frequency

As summer winds down and we get ready for fall – new titles for the month of August were strong – 72 total, 20 with frequency and 52 specials.

I have always said that magazines are reflectors of our society and the titles for the month of August proved no exception to that statement – illuminating the history of the month with a tribute title for Elvis and of course, the tragic death of Robin Williams. From People to Life to Rolling Stone, magazines honored the comedic genius. The covers of these timely issues were amazing and the content extremely well-written, proving once again that magazines mirror our sadness and happiness as a whole and all that happens within.

So I hope you enjoy the August launches…up first our frequency:

It Was A Jubilant July – With 77 New Titles – 22 With Frequency…

It is said that Julius Caesar reformed the Roman calendar (hence the Julian calendar) in 46 BC. In the process, he renamed this month (July) after himself and surely published the event of the reformation in the brand new “Roman Times” magazine or I’d like to think so anyway…

Suffice it to say, I believe Caesar would be proud of the 77 new titles that have been born in his month, especially a gorgeous new Book-a-zine aptly named “Ancient Rome.”

55 specials and 22 with frequency – certainly a grand July for magazines. So enjoy the beautiful covers and get ready for an amazing August!
