Stupid Failing Economy

Timing is everything, and between oil and the housing crisis and the end of print journalism as we know it, now might not be the best time for a high-end "living" magazine.

At least that's what the folks at Vogue Living seem to have concluded. WWD is reporting that the Vogue spin-off will not publish a scheduled second issue. A Vogue spokesperson said that "given the current ad climate, this wasn't the time to roll out a second issue," though they are apparently still considering a 2009 issue. -www.mediabistro.com

This was the single best magazine I have ever put my hands on. It sat in my studio for at least six months while I was preparing for my thesis show. Juicy colors filled every page. The interiors featured were all vastly different but all equally appealing. I flipped through it over and over for inspiration until every page was dog eared. Am I the only one to ever come to covet this issue?
