The magazine industry digs itself into a deeper niche.

"This is not about tighter buns. It's all about ... the incredible invigoration that women get from achieving certain goals they set out to achieve." --Editor Dagny Scott on Outside magazine spinoff Women Outside


Inside Outside

From the premier chronicler of the outdoor adventure, a new monthly packed with interior design tips for creating rugged, exhilarating spaces out of standard-sized bedrooms and kitchens. In our debut issue, Sebastian Junger finds "The Perfect Storm Window." Plus, a Scandinavian furniture report: Jon Krakauer is "Into Finn Chairs."


Maxim Silver

A new laddie book for laddies of a certain age. A place where the sports cars are bigger, the breasts are seasoned, and the beer is wine. The premiere issue features a hot and heavy photo shoot, as Bo Derek and Farrah Fawcett get wild in Palm Springs.


Architectural Digest, Braille Edition

Style is an ineffable creature--what can't be seen can always be felt. Now there's a magazine dedicated to that spirit and to the spirit of America's many blind citizens. Our Braille descriptions spare no detail, bringing to life a lavish, eight-page photo spread on Bunny Williams' adorable Connecticut farmhouse. Plus, several more Braille descriptions of other lavish photo spreads. Same glossy paper--but with bumps!


Prospect Forum

The luminaries behind the American Prospect offer a new journal for the liberal libidinal imagination. Prospect Forum delivers ribald tales of seduction and kinky sexxx fantasies--all illustrative of the proper role for a compassionate, activist government. Jedediah Purdy pens "Log Cabin Lovin'," a gazonga extravaganza in praise of the things every 46DDD babe has in common. This guy sincerely digs a great rack!
