Paper bashing continues?..
It has been one BIG month for graphic paper bashing. Everywhere I seem to look at the moment paper is coming in for a hard time. Take the latest report from the Association of Magazine Media (MPA) in the US. It has calculated that total consumer magazine ad pages dropped 4.9% in the first half of 2013 compared to 2012, but more worrying than that, major news magazines Time, The Economist, The Atlantic, The Week, and The New Yorker had a combined plummet of 18%!
