From the Editor: In recent years there had been much talk about the demise of print media. Despite this perceived current trend, I never accepted the theory that readers no longer wanted a beautiful magazine to tuck into a handbag, take to the coffee shop, or read on a bus, train or plane.
Subscriptions, sales and confidence may have collapsed during the recent global recession, but in recent years more magazines have been launched globally than ever before. It may be a surprise for some that print is making a comeback but the current demand is not for the traditional style magazine, instead it is for more aesthetic publications whose arrangement of content, photography and design provide attractive and intelligent content for the modern reader.
Anthology was created from the belief that both consumers and advertisers were ready for a new title and that magazines will always have a place on peoples’ shelves and coffee tables. Print has qualities that digital formats cannot really compete with and there will always be a desire to touch beautiful textures, flick through pages to enjoy stunning design and photography, smell the inks, make doodles on a page, or fold down a corner for a further look.
From fashion, shopping and beauty, to travel, well-being and design, Anthology will offer readers a visually driven, unique and sophisticated editorial mix. The character of the magazine, through its design and content will be vital in creating a voice that will establish its position in the market.
