O No Domino !

I Can't Believe it! A domino effect is happening in print media, especially shelter magazines. Domino is folding. The Conde Nast publication launched in April 2005 had been
rumored to be on the chopping block. Now it's official....How sad... Are hard copy publications on their way out? They've definitely hit a snag and this economic downturn isn't helping.
All you design bloggers....hang on to your back issues of everything... Print media seems to be going the way of the dinosaur.

I know!! I'm so sad too!!! Although I love blogging there's nothing like curling up on the couch with a new magazine. Thanks so much for your sweet comment!!!

In tribute to Domino, I bought the Domino Book of Decorating on Amazon. Just to have a relic.
Ironically, the book purchase comes with a free subscription! Haha. The book looks just like the mag...

Good idea Rachel... I think I'll pick up the book too.

Fay, I think back issues of our collection of design magazines may be worth some money in the future. Domino sent me a card saying that they are going to replace my subscription with a subscrition to Glamor. I'll pass it on to my 22 year old daughter. In responce to Lauren's comment, curling up to a copy of a fashon magazine is not as comforting as a good design magazine. Some folks have comfort food and some have comfort reading. Mary
