Vogue is the Top Selling Fashion Magazine

Vogue is the Top Selling Fashion Magazine

Vogue August 2011 featuring Sarah Jessica Parker

It looks like print isn’t dead — not totally.

Magazines haven’t been flying off newsstands as of late, but Vogue is the exception — thanks to the March issue (which featured Lady Gaga). That particular issue boosted sales more than 100,000 copies from the previous year and, overall, the sales of the mag are up 12.7 percent from last year

Sounds pretty good.
