Hearst’s Country Living today announced that its September issue will mark the debut of a beefed-up trim size (that’s jargon for how big the pages are) and a new logo. The issue, fittingly called “the Makeover issue,” also marks a new price point for the magazine; Country Living will now retail for $4.50, up from $3.99. The magazine said it made the decision after testing the new size and price in certain U.S. markets.
“The larger format makes the experience of reading the magazine so much richer. It’s amazing how much better the photography looks now. As for the logo, it feels fresher, friendlier and more contemporary,” said editor in chief Sarah Gray Miller in a statement.
