Good news for fans of Condé Nast’s shuttered shelter publication Domino. The beloved design book, which was published from 2005 until 2009, will be brought back this spring—in some form, at least. Confirming recent rumors of a Domino revival (as reported by Curbed.com last month), Condé Nast said that it plans to publish a special edition of the magazine called Quick Fixes, which will be available on newsstands from April 17 through July 16. (A second special edition, as yet untitled, will be released in the fall.)
According to the press release, Quick Fixes will include some of Domino’s “best home decorating stories, focusing on easy, often inexpensive changes that make a big difference.” Catherine Kelley, Condé Nast’s executive director of content development, will oversee the project and its team of editors, which includes Mat Sanders of the popular Apartment Therapy blog. (Sanders was formerly rumored to be in charge of the special edition magazine.) Deborah Needleman, Domino’s founding editor and current editor in chief of WSJ, The Wall Street Journal magazine, isn’t involved in the revival, but told Adweek via email, “I wish them luck!”
CN editorial director Thomas Wallace called the Domino effort “another example of Condé Nast’s objective to bring brands to life across multiple platforms." The publisher has also tried to revive the now-defunct Gourmet brand through a website, Gourmet Live blog and app, and special edition magazines like Gourmet Holiday.
