More Anniversaries, More Celebrations, More Staying Power Of Magazines…

November 14, 2016

A Mr. Magazine™ Musing…

It is a fact that I enjoy recording births of new magazines rather than deaths of magazines. With every birth there lives the challenge of survival. Some new magazines survive to a respectable age and some are not so lucky; they barely celebrate their first year.

But what about those that survive not one, or two years, but ten, 20, 40, 75 and even 90 years and are still going strong? Well, in my book it is yet another reason to celebrate the power of magazines. Needless to remind you that by my definition “if it is not ink on paper, it is not a magazine.”

So, please join me as the magazine industry celebrates the 90th anniversary of World Literature Today magazine, the 75th anniversary of the Antioch Review, the 50th anniversary of The Chronicle of Higher Education, the 40th anniversary of In These Times and Lilith magazines, the 20th anniversary of Yes magazine, and the 10th anniversary of Good magazine.

And talking about good things, here are the anniversary covers of these celebrating titles:


Until the next celebration, enjoy and may the power of magazines be with you.
