With so many magazines going digital, how and why do you think that printed publications might still survive? “There is always a love and appreciation for printed material. Holding a publication in your hand, with the smell of the paper wafting in the air, your fingers flipping through the pages… You don’t get that experience digitally. Besides, we are creatures of habit. The first printed book has been around since 1455 with the help of Johann Gutenberg’s movable-type printing press, and studies have shown that printed publications are still alive and thriving to this day.”
