Fewer new magazines are launching. But fewer are folding, too.

Only 97 new print and digital magazines launched in the first half of 2013, down from 133 in the year-ago period, according to figures released today by MediaFinder.com, an online database of U.S. and Canadian publications.

Food and regional titles dominated new launches, with 12 new food magazines including Allrecipes.com, a print spinoff of the popular home cooks website owned by Meredith Corp., a few annuals from Better Homes and Gardens, Edible Milwaukee, along with 10 new regional publications.
