After 90 Years, Foreign Affairs Adopts a New Look

Foreign Affairs yesterday unveiled a new look, which for the first time in the magazine’s 90-year history puts a picture on the cover. The January/February 2013 issue showcases the new look and new features, such as a monthly interview with a prominent newsmaker. Editor Gideon Rose tells Politico the periodical is seeking to “move beyond our wonky, quarterly appeal.”

The redesign comes on the heels of the magazine’s release of its first-ever iPad app earlier this month and a year of healthy growth in print and digital (including an all time-high paid readership of about 175,000), as profiled by Publishing Executive in the current issue.
