Jezebel Asks: Is the End Near for Magazines?

Jezebel reports that newsstand sales for magazines are decreasing:

They say, “The decline is generally blamed on the rise of the internet (duh). Most magazines put a portion of their content on the web, and apparently there are some blogs that post all the juicy bits from magazines online. But recent figures suggest it isn’t just the internet cutting into magazine sales anymore. The decline accelerated in 2008 as consumers decided shelling out for magazines each month wasn’t an essential part of their recession budget. “

People have been talking about the decline of print forever, but I don’t think the internet will replace fashion publications. Beautiful fashion spreads can’t be easily replicated online–great models in breathtaking clothes look best on paper.

But what do you think?

Is print dead?
