When wintry winds blow fierce and cold, what’s a person to do? Why, curl up with a good magazine, of course. And January certainly brought us an exceptional array to choose from. Magazines who discovered the print life after being digital only, like “Dun” magazine, and companies like Away luggage that there is life “Here” as you travel there.

Also there were “Bursts of Color” for the New Year, and “Gin” for those of us who needed a little warming from the inside-out. From the “Hungry Girl, ” Lisa Lillien’s own kitchen filled with recipes and advice, to “Kitchen Toke,” where one could spend the first long winter month of the year learning how to cook with cannabis; these new batch of titles January cooked up were deliciously diverse.

And for those who love the world of watches, and how things such as collectible cars, architecture, travel and style revolve around the face of “time” like a second hand, there’s a new title from Hodinkee, the website that has become one of the most articulate voices in the industry, called – you guessed it – “Hodinkee.” The premier launch also includes 500 limited editions copies with a special black matte cover. (As shown below)

And two honorable mentions, “Reputation”, a magazine in two volumes for the ultimate Taylor Swift fan, and “Paul Ryan,” an unofficial title all about, who else, Paul Ryan, follow our January list. And while not frequency titles, these deserve to be highlighted because the power of the printed word and the dynamic effectiveness of a magazine’s cover spans the spectrum from celebrity-hood to politics (unofficial though that political title may be).

So, enjoy these great new magazines that gave us hours of reading pleasure during the cold days of January, and will continue to entertain us for many months to come.

See you soon for a Fabulous February!

******And please remember, if Mr. Magazine™ can’t physically hold, touch and purchase the magazine, it does not enter the monthly counts. And counts now include only the titles with a regular frequency that are either new or arriving to the national newsstands for the first time.

And now our “Honorable Mentions”
