Maybe at the inauguration someone should give the man a cape. The sales numbers are in for various post-election magazine issues and perhaps not surprisingly they are good! According to the NYO The New Yorker‘s ‘O’ moon rising was the the second biggest in Remnick history and the third biggest overall, clocking in at 84,000 issues. The the 9/11 issue and Tina Brown’s cover after the death of Princess Di ranked first and second respectively.
Meanwhile Time sold 575,000(!) copies, also their biggest of the year, and that’s not including the book they went to press with shortly after the election (also, the ‘Person of the Year’ count isn’t in yet).
And we’ve already told you, a number of times, about the numerous successes the New York Times has had repackaging November 4. Making history is PROFITABLE. In light of that probably best to start steeling yourself now for the inauguration bonanza that is coming our way.
