Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

"Within 25 years, only 10 percent of the paper-based magazine industry will remain"—this is one of several statistics author Renard (founder, MU Inc/Netcirculation) marshals to portray the upheaval in magazine publishing in this title accompanied by the traveling exhibition "Magazines in Transition." Renard attributes the decline in print circulation in part to readers' desire to access up-to-the-minute interactive media and in part to inefficiencies in the periodical distribution system that have made old business models untenable. Through smart essays by industry figures (e.g., Steven Heller, Bob Sacks, Nick Hampshire), he projects a future in which periodicals will be divided into two distinct types: mass-market titles available only in electronic form, which are interactive and continuously updated; and the "stylepress," periodicals offering a "tactile" experience to a niche audience of trendsetters, defying publishing conventions, and valuing forward design over traditional strategies. Graphic designers will appreciate the many full-page color illustrations of stylepress covers and interiors, while industry insiders will be interested in this contribution to a topic with which they have no doubt been grappling for some time.
