Casa's local paper, the SF Chronicle, just reported on the recent pruning of the once-flourishing shelter magazine market. With the losses of House and Garden and Blueprint, some readers are definitely in mourning (if the numerous comments on our posts were any indication). The Chronicle article points out several possible factors for the folding of the mags, including the housing crisis and the rising preference for DIY design. What I want to know is what you think of the loss of several shelter mags? Do you care? What magazines do you think are next to go? And which ones do you hope will continue to show up on the rack at your favorite bookstore?
