mag nation's magazines

No-one knows magazines quite like mag nation, who tout themselves as the world's first and only magazine superstore. mag nation are the experts of the magazine world, stocking all kinds of publications from the mainstream, to the niche, to the downright obscure. And while our fashion pictures section is always packed with the latest editorials, photoshoots, and ad campaigns, we here at still believe that there are things worth buying in print. This is the challenge of the print magazine world; not merely to survive, but to push the boundaries enough to stay relevant in an internet-dominated world, where the latest fashion trends are at your fingertips faster than you can say 'Anna Wintour', and the latest show coverage is accessible as it happens.

So which magazines are taking up the challenge, and producing content that is so comprehensive you want to feel it in pages; or editorials so outstanding they're worthy of sitting on your coffee table for the next six months? To help us help you distinguish the best of the best in print magazines, we've enlisted the aid of mag nation to give us a monthly run-down of the world's must-have mags.

So without further ado, here's a brief introduction to four of mag nation's recommended reads for the month.
