The Magazine wasn't the first app-based publication to eschew the complexity of many print-to-digital approaches, but it was the first to coherently articulate this as a new model for publishing on Newstand.

Jessica Simmons of Simmons Ardell , formerly of sister design firms Milton Glaser Inc and WBMG, has signed on to design an upcoming print collection drawn from both the first 100 articles appearing in The Magazine and newly commissioned work.
A print version of the best bits! Count me in.
