Welcome to the twenty-first century! This edition of the Magazine Museum's website highlights the magazines of the years 2000 - 2009. The first decade of the new century saw continued growth in the magazine publishing business. But these are confusing times for magazine publishing. Producing and distributing magazines is changing drastically, becoming much more complex. These changes have been brought on by digital and on-line factors. Digital technology has made it possible to produce and distribute magazines without the ages-old use of printing on paper. Publishers now have the ability to communicate without printing. Huge savings are now possible by avoiding the printing process. Also adding to the changes is the elimination of the distribution process. Distributors are not needed if you are not printing your magazine. Also, the need for magazine stores has been drastically decreased. Magazine stores, at least in the US, have basically disappeared. All of this means the business of magazines has changed. But magazines are not dead. Magazines are still an important part of social order and the world's cultures. We hope you enjoy the magazines of the years 2000-2009.
You may notice a new addition to our web site. We have added a new page- The Magazine Store. At this point the Magazine Store is only an experiment. Time (and sales) will tell us if we are to continue with selling used books and magazines on this site. As of now, your only means of purchasing any of these items is by email. We may add shopping cart software in the near future. If you do wish to purchase any of these items please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will reply to your phone number or email address as soon as possible.
The Magazine Museum is a nonprofit organization, dedicated to the glorification, presentation, and preservation of magazines. We wish to acknowledge and pass on an appreciation of both the power of the printed page and the beauty of graphic visual communication. We will do this by means of five departments:
1.Magazine Museum Home Page.
2.Magazine Museum Covers and Pages.
3.Magazine Museum Databank.
4.Magazine Museum Gallery.
5.Magazine Museum Store.
The Purpose of this website is, first and foremost, to communicate with other magazine lovers.
We hope to provide information and a forum for appreciating magazines, in general, and the graphics, art, and photography of magazines, in particular. We hope, eventually, to provide a means for buying and selling magazines and books.
