Super Model Magazine is a Thing That is Happening

Michael Jacobson, the former publisher of Trump, has a knack for getting behind odd publications. According to the New York Post, Jacobson is launching Super Model magazine, a luxury title dedicated to “the lifestyle of supermodels.” We’re not kidding. Jacobson actually said that.

We honestly have no idea what is included in “the lifestyle of supermodels” (Fancy rice cakes? Telling people you’re a supermodel? Gossiping about Claudia Schiffer?) but here’s Jacobson’s take on what people can expect from Super Model: “I think men will look on it as the new Maxim or a sexy Robb Report.”

A sexy Robb Report! If that means photo spreads of Maybach’s wearing skimpy bikinis, we’re in.

Super Model will debut August 7, with a paid circulation of 400,000. Prepare yourself.

WSJ. Magazine Booms Despite Tough Market

wsj_c3333over.jpgIt may be a terrible year for the print industry, with diminishing ad sales forcing magazines to scale back on the number of issues and pages they can afford, but at least one magazine is claiming that they’re doing better than ever.

The Wall Street Journal‘s one-year-old magazine, WSJ. (can’t forget that unnecessary period!) will begin printing six issues a year instead of its traditional quarterly print run, starting in March of next year. In addition, the glossy’s circulation will almost double from its current 800,000 subscribers to 1.5 million.

“The magazine speaks directly to the world’s most discerning consumers about the people, places and products that matter most to them,” saied WSJ. editor-in-chief Tina Gaudoin, who is perhaps forgetting the lessons learned this year in the closing of haute business and lifestyle titles like Trump Magazine, Portfolio, and Fortune Small Business.

Then again, The Wall Street Journal has managed to make itself an exception to every industry rule this year and is still expanding, so perhaps some of that luck will rub off on WSJ.

Full press release after the jump.
