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…

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…

September Delivered Autumn & 15 New Titles To The Newsstands…

September transitions us into the fall season (unless you live in Mississippi, where we’re still wearing shorts and flip flops), and during this autumnal time of year – 15 new magazines were born onto newsstands (or at least arrived at the newsstands for the first time), all showcasing the things that magazines do best: entertain, enlighten, and inform. Here are a few of this month’s new titles highlighted:

Where Women Cook Our Table comes to us from Jo Packham, a self-proclaimed (and well deserving) woman of ideas. This new magazine is an amazingly beautiful addition to her other four titles in the “Where Women” brand. Jo has brought our natural love for food and the magic of fall all together in this premier issue. The imagery is beautiful and the recipes tantalizing!

This year B Inspired the magazine rebranded itself into The B Collective, since celebrating all events and the art of wedding planning is what the brand focuses on as they inspire each and every reader to strive for beautiful style in all life’s celebrations.

And these are just two of the great new titles. So, enjoy the beautiful covers of September and we’ll see you in October!

Until then…

See you at the newsstands…

****Please note both covers of Be Inspired and The B Collective are shown, but only one is used in the counts.

August Gave Us 19 New Titles For An Amazing Summer Wrap-Up

The hottest new online video game out there deserves two new magazines devoted to it in the month of August – Fortnite has an “Ultimate Guide” and an “Independent & Unofficial Guide.” Choices for the avid player, no doubt, and available at your newsstands.

Another hot topic in the forefront of the marketplace is cannabis and its many uses. From medical to recreational, as more states come to terms with the legalization of marijuana, magazines dealing with the culture and the growing industry abound. Ember is the latest offering from a collaboration from the teams over at Paper and MedMen. It’s an interesting look at incorporating cannabis into anyone’s lifestyle and making it as matter-of-fact as lighting a candle. And it has a feel of artsy-ness abouti it that can’t be ignored.

And other new titles such as Retro Fan, a new title that revisits the CRAZY, COOL CULTURE WE GREW UP WITH in the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s, or so the tagline insists. And since Mr. Magazine™ interviewed the editor of the new title, Michael Eury, I can tell you that’s exactly what it does. From The Hulk to The Andy Griffith Show, this new magazine hits the mark when it comes to our TV and cartoon memories of yesterday. Good Company also joins the ranks, a magazine inspired by Grace Bonney’s latest book, “In the Company of Women”provides motivation, inspiration, practical advice, and a vital sense of connection and community.

So, I hope that you enjoy our beautiful August covers and are awaiting a splendid September as anxiously as Mr. Magazine™ is. So, until next time…

17 New Titles For The Summer Months Of June & July…

As the summer is winding down and most people are preparing for a return to school, football and fall (at least here in our little town of Oxford, Mississippi anyway), it’s time to see what the newsstands were up to during the torridly hot months of June and July. There was a total of 17 new titles for the two months together, and I must say, they were and are a sight to behold.

From the world of Stampington & Company, came In Her Studio, a title that seeks to inspire readers with the spaces and stories of creative women, at least according to its tagline. A magazine that offers advice and encouragement to crafters, it’s a lovely addition to the brand’s already successful portfolio.

And children’s magazines abounded. From Paw Patrol to Disney Tangled The Series, summertime was an excellent opportunity for kids to do a bit of summer reading and stretch their imaginations.

All in all, June & July gave us some beautiful magazines and some great information and entertainment. So, please enjoy our amazing summer covers and we’ll see you soon for an Astounding August!

Until then…see you at the newsstands…
