THE CLOSURE OF WARDOUR NEWS (AND THE FUTURE OF PRINT)


[ PHOTOGRAPHY: Vogue ]

Wardour News is closing after thirty-four years and it leaves me to question the future of print. The Soho newsagents famously stocked a range of independent publications and was a mecca for print lovers. Sadly due to the increasing age of the owners and increase in rent, it is having to close its doors to the world. Even though the situation can't be helped, it means there is one less place to buy print magazines on the high street. Personally, I like to flick through magazines in shops before I buy them as their physical appeal is important to me. Therefore, this concerns me, because if other consumers also have this shopping habit then what is left for the future of print in the digital age?
