  1. 1. Magazines: A History
  2. 2. Introduction Magazines are a form of media, in print. Media in its literal term means to communicate and so magazines are a way to communicate with the world, just like newspapers, books, visual images on screen and audios, all these are a form of media. Media dates back to the time when men used to convey messages using a piece of rock! and that was a very...very long time ago, unless people count their children playing in the dirt, which can also be perceived as an unorthodox means of communication!
  3. 3. Magazines have undergone drastic changes over the years, from brochures to articles to black and white comics to actual booklets with standardized piece of literature...joking! I'm sure it wasn't as mundane for those people back in those days. For example the Harper's Weekly was a very popular American publication during the 19th century, which issued illustrations of some of the events from the civil war, Mercure de France was a 17th century French publication, Erbauliche Monaths Unterredungen was a German publication that was authored by a single man named Johann Rist, the magazine inspired many other magazines to be fabricated and led a very ardent and intellectual audience to come forth and partake in it. It is considered to be the earliest publications to be equivalent to a modern magazine. Many other magazines that have been more persistent over the years include the Cosmopolitan, first issued in 1886, Times magazine, first issued in 1923, Vogue, first issued in 1892 and so on. Different Kinds Of Magazines
  4. 4. Magazines like every other forms of media has genres and are addressed to a particular crowd of people, example the magazine, Vogue, is a fashion magazine for mostly women. Other magazines would be based on education, politics, art, music, travel, cooking and various other categories that appeal to a particular kind of audience. In its early stages, magazines were created to reach an extensive amount of people all over the world. Writing down books by hand was quite a task and when the printing press was invented it brought a whole revolution to the concept of publishing. Pamphlets, newsletters and religious material was printed and published so the whole world could have a chance to obtain knowledge that was pretty much limited due to fewer resources. With the growing population of magazines, authors began distributing them as subscriptions which ensured that the subscriber would acquire each new issue of the publication. Now magazines are also sold on the basis of a subscription and can also be read online as well as received for free such as airline magazines. About Magazines
  5. 5. There is a debate on the whether magazines will remain in their physical form or be completely transmitted to digital form. People are getting more engrossed in their personal and professional lives that they don't seem to have the time to stop at a nearby store to purchase a magazine and for certain people it is more easier to catch up on the news or hot gossip by reading about it online. However there are still an ample amount of conventional souls out there who prefer the sweet smell of printed paper and will probably have a whole stack of digests piled up on their book shelf! it honestly depends from person to person really. But as we take another step into the future it is more evident that online magazines will become a trend. Hey! the mayans predicted the invention of aeroplanes didn't they? Epilogue
