Some 2009 Highlights: min’s Top 10 Magazine Launches Of The Year

9931_cesarsway.jpgWith the print industry hurting so badly this year and magazines shuttering left and right, it’s a Christmas miracle that any new publications were launched at all. minOnline took a moment today to celebrate its favorite print launches this year — ten magazines that have managed to weather the economic climate while even venerable titles like Gourmet closed.

min’s favorite magazines range from animal-focused (Cesar’s Way) to experimental travel (Afar), to the Flair-based Vintage, which reminded us that excess is not always a bad thing.

HWheVzdR_20090117131850.jpgVintage magazine hopes to inspire readers to remember a time when high fashion wasn’t about cutting corners. Inspired by the short-lived Flair magazine (founded by Fleur Cowles) Vintage‘s founder Ivy Baer Sherman hopes to recreate a mingling of “style and content” with Vintage, which includes a piece on the styles of Barbie in the 1950s, as well as “One man’s ode to his 1973 Dino Ferrari.”

But at a time when publications are sorely lacking in ad sales and extravagance is being cut from titles like Vanity Fair and Vogue, do we need another reminder that the industry ain’t what it used to be?

Full press release for Vintage magazine, after the jump.
