OUR INNOVATIONS IN MAGAZINES 2011 REPORT IS HERE

I just got the first hot copies.

130 pages of fantastic Sappi newsprint  full of ideas, trends, innovations and great content.

This is our second global report for FIPP, the Worldwide Magazine Media Association.

As his President, Chris Llewellyn says in the Introduction, this new report started last year has been “one of the FIPP’s most successful products.”

Edited by INNOVATION’s John Wilpers in Boston and Juan Senor in London, the report was designed by Javier Zarracina, with a great illustration cover of Deborah Withey that this year shines in amazing gold and silver inks of Polestar, and brilliant caricatures from Luis Gañena

A must-read interview Jonas Bonnier opens a report that will be presented in Berlin on March 14 at the FIPP Digital’s Innovators Summit.

THE LAST DAYS OF FIDEL CASTRO AND THE LAST WISH OF CARLOS CASTAÑEDA

4585500873_3cf2a4ce04_o

If you want to follow in Spanish the last days of Fidel Castro’s regime, click here.

Penúltimos Días is one of the best collaborative blogs about the end of a dictatorship.

I posted here this cover from Bohemia remembering the late Carlos Catañeda, former assistant editor of LIFE en Español, and editor of El Nuevo Día, the great newspaper of Puerto Rico.

Carlos joined in 1954 the weekly magazine Bohemia.

Years later, he was one of the first journalists to interview Fidel Castro.

After many year in the exile, I meet Carlos in San Juan.

During a dinner with me and Deborah he told us that his last project will be to start the first free paper in post-Castro’s Cuba.

And looking to us said: “You will help me, and Deborah will design it”

He died in Lisbon in 2002, but we will never forget his last wish.

I am sure that some of his friends will found the paper.

“Founded by Carlos Catañeda in the exile” will be the motto.

And Deborah and I will be in La Habana to launch it.

The time is coming.

NEXT MONDAY ON SALE, OUR FIRST “INNOVATIONS IN MAGAZINES” REPORT

INNOVATIONS IN MAGAZINES COVER

The 2010 INNOVATIONS IN MAGAZINES Global Report will be on sale and available online next Monday.

FIPP will be launching the first Innovations in Magazines report at its Digital Conference on 1 March 2010.

INNOVATION’s Juan Senor (London) and John Wilpers (Boston) are the co-editors of the new 10-page report.

The report is a global look at the most innovative initiatives to increase magazine reach, relevance, revenue, and readership.

The survey will highlight a series of magazine case studies and interviews showing initiatives that have a proven track record of being successful, focusing on identifying innovation in content-driven solutions. The study will be co-published by Innovation Media Consulting, which has also produced the annual World Association of Newspapers World Report for more than 10 years.

John Wilpers said: “If press reports were an accurate thermometer of the health of the magazine industry, publishers, editors and sales people would be out in droves looking for jobs in different industries. Instead, IINNOVATON found the brightest minds in the magazine industry to be bursting with innovative energy. Good news never makes the nightly television broadcast, but there is an abundance of good news as technology, out-of-the-box thinking, and old-fashioned hard work are enabling innovation that is delivering new readers, revenues and relevance to magazines around the world. The future of magazines is indeed bright, and we’ll show how and why in the first annual Innovations in Magazines report.”

Illustrated by Deborah Withey and Luis Grañena, and designed by Javier Zarracina, the first INNOVATIONS IN MAGAZINES is a fantastic report inspired by our two INNOVATION’s magazine gurus: Juan Caño and Thomaz Souto Correa.

WORLD’S FIRST: GET A REAL 1876 STEVE JOBS SLATE

IMG_0245_2

I just posted in UK eBay this unique item for an auction sale:

A 1876 Welsh old slate from the original roof of one of the three Cathedral Villas (13 Nun Street) in St. Davids, Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK.

Hand painted by famous British-American Award Winning illustrator Deborah Withey.

The original slate pictures Apple’s CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs holding, in a world-first-premiere-show, the upcoming Apple iSlate, that will be presented in San Francisco, California, on January 27, 20910.

The money from this auction will be given to a national charity foundation.

Size: 10,3 x 12,3 inches.

The slate comes from the original roof of a 1876 house constructed with stones and slates from St Davids Cathedral, that was built upon the site of St David’s 6th century monastery and has been a site of pilgrimage and worship for many hundreds of years.
