Only 13% Of The September Issue Of Vogue Is Editorial

Of Vogue’s 840 pages, 727 are ads. Via Pixelsurgeon. (Actually that's good news to me. The best part of most magazines, and especially fashion magazines, is the ads.)

Well I certainly get Vogue for free because I'm a writer.

So who pays to get Vogue?

People buy the fashion magazines for the advertisements because the ads are the ways these companies communicate to other people in their field.

Working in retail, you read the fashion ads like programmers read Slashdot.

More ads equal more content. That's what vogue essentially markets, the ads.

It's as if no one here knew that, and that kind of illiteracy is a little scary.

I think ads are acceptable as long as they're good an clever ones, but I may be biased since that is my supposed area of expertise, I'm supposed to be up to date with ads and stuff like that.

The pictures in these mags are not bad either, of course that there must be bad ones in there but such is life.
