Which magazine is the next to go?

Magazine publisher Condé Nast's ad revenues for the first quarter of the year have been released and it doesn't look good. Comparing same fiscal quarters for 2008 and 2009, all Condé Nast titles save one (Golf World) suffered declines.

A round-up of their design, fashion, and lifestyle titles:

Cookie -1.3%
Vogue -23.9%
Vanity Fair -26.3%
Lucky -31.5%
W -37%
Architectural Digest -44.9%

Please don't let it be AD - they provide us with so much fodder...

I just hope it isn't VF. Love them and their editorial content.

I hope it's not Cookie... I finally got a chance to see a copy at the doc's office and it had a photo spread by Mary Ellen freakin Mark. Best parenting magazine. ever.

If Vogue folds, it will unleash Anna Wintour on the world and I'm afraid of what might happen.

I love Cookie, but I feel it may be next. I'm so over Vogue, but I think it will never die.

i think vogue needs to step it up - compared to vogues from other places, but i dont think theyll ever kill it. vanity fair is my favorite magazine in the world, so i have to believe it will be around forever. the rest can fight amongst themselves :)
