LIFE, the photo-heavy supplement that Time Inc. floated for some time is going away for good come April. If you were surprised, take a minute to slap yourself back to reality.
I often picked up the thin supplement in disgust. It was a last ditch effort to resuscitate a legendary brand name in publishing, but it looked pathetic. Nothing about it suggested that it would or even could stay for long. Can anybody here think of one photo essay in the new version that stood out? No? Me neither. What a shame, eh?
Oy! Let’s all take a moment and pray that the zine has a better, um, after-life, as an online archive.[Via Rob Galbraith]
