Shape France Folds

Many of you probably never even realized there was a Shape France, but it’s too late now to get to know it. The New York Post reports that the title is folding; the current issue being its last. Shape France launched almost exactly one year ago, but it never gained any traction with readers.

“The international market, based on the economy, is very challenging, especially in France,” an AMI spokesperson told the Post.

Shape France’s shuttering coincides with the departure of Sue Yein Butcher, a veteran of AMI. Butcher had been with the company since David Pecker purchased it in 1999.
