I’ve been happy to receive several issues of Garden and Gun, the magazine from Charleston, SC that has had some interesting takes on food issues.
I was saddened to receive the note today that indicates the tough times paper publications are facing. The magazine emailed subscribers:
To help shore up our business for 2010 and beyond, we recently made the difficult decision to skip our October/November issue. This was a painful thing for the G&G team, and we hate to disappoint you, our loyal subscribers. However, please rest assured that you will receive the full number of copies you ordered when you subscribed or joined one of our club levels. (We will handle that for you, so no need to call our customer service.) And know this: We will never compromise on the quality of the writing, the photography, or the beautiful paper that Garden & Gun is printed on.
Here’s hoping they’re able to make it through the current economy.
