Mighty tree killers

I’ve spent the last 10 years of my life fighting to save magazines.

In doing that, I’ve made more enemies than friends. From industry grandees to brand new trainees, people don’t want to hear that the folded paper idea of a magazine is in serious decline.

Somehow, they’ve lost sight of the purpose of a magazine – to inform and entertain those with a passion for a subject – and become focused on the form.

Maybe an industry obsessed with killing trees and printing their precious words on their abused, pulped corpses doesn’t really deserve to survive. But I think it does.
