Comeback Kids: Gourmet and Domino (Sort of)

leave a comment »

I knew Conde Nast would come to regret their decision to fold Gourmet and Domino during the recession.  Both magazines are attempting a come back right now.  Well, sort of.  To clarify: Domino’s archives have been acquired Brides.com and Gourmet magazine is attempting to rebrand and relaunch the magazine via the iPad.

Domino:

Forget those grainy scans off of Flickr and dog-earred mags stuffed on the bookcase — the blogworld’s favorite decorating magazine has finally (finally!) found a new home online thanks to the relaunch of brides.com. Julie Raimondi, Editor-in-Chief of the site and the accompanying local magazines says:

I’m also thrilled to announce that brides.com has been granted access to all of the stories from the late, great Domino magazine. It was my favorite magazine, and I feel so incredibly lucky to be able to turn its pages into a digital archive for our users. We have a number of Domino stories now, but will be adding more and more in the weeks and months to come, so keep checking back.

Gourmet:

Gourmet Live, which the company said would be made available free, is slated to be released in the fourth quarter of this year. The application will largely draw from the magazine’s staggering collection of recipes, food essays and photographs but will also include some new content.

Oh, Thank Goodness.
