54 Magazines Launch in First Quarter 2011

Either people who love print are just stubborn, or there really is some hope after all. A post on Folio says that 54 magazines launched in Q1 2011, more than doubling the amount that launched during the same period in 2010. The categories that saw the most growth were regional – like Plum Miami – and women’s.

Of course, since FishbowlNY tries to cover all the areas of a story, we have to mention that while there were many launches, 25 magazines folded during the first three months of this year too.

But just ignore that last sentence and keep giving it the ol’ college try, magazine lovers. We like your determination and/or insanity.
