Print is not dead. There are plenty of magazines out there still going strong (dwell, Martha Stewart, Vogue, Uppercase, Good and so on)... and I hope they continue to strengthen. I hope new magazines surface. I miss the laid back days of new product finds through magazines. Do not get me wrong, I love blogs (they have helped my business tremendously and networks have been strengthened) but how much can we stay on the computer, really? It is getting crazy. Not to mention, magazines did not update everyday. They came out one time a month or maybe six times a year. Everything is too fast now. It is like your product is old in one day. Hopefully not, but you get the point. We need balance.
Until then, enjoy the black and white charm of photographer, Ruth Orkin and her image of the "Comic Book Readers".
