In case you haven’t seen it yet, the nice folks at Consumerist have photographic evidence of the latest issue of GOOD Magazine, which has decided to take a page from Rolling Stone (and then some) by shrinking way down in size. But while the latter made the move quietly in an effort to cut back on costs, GOOD is hanging it all out there for the whole world to see, stating that this slightly-larger-than-a-Readers Digest-sized edition is their “Recession Issue” featuring “Now 80% Less…At Least.” And true to the cover’s claims, it’s chock full of stories about cutting back, looking for work, and what music you should be listening to in these glum times. It’s certainly a clever concept, and we hope it wins them a couple of award nods, but we also have our fingers crossed that they return to the standard size format next month, which would make the whole thing all the more extra extra clever.
