Domino, which folded in 2009, once topped a list of most missed magazines (Sassy would’ve topped our list but we get it, people like their home decor). Occasionally magazines do get resurrected, so those of you who hoped that would be the case for this recession victim will be pleased to hear you could be reading Domino again as soon as April.
According to AdWeek, it won’t be released as a traditional monthly publication, but as biannual special editions that will stay on newsstands for three months. The first one, called “Quick Fixes” will hit newsstands April 17 and a second one will bow in the fall.
Although it hasn’t been reported, we imagine there will (and should) be a significant online component to the relaunch. So far, they have launched a Twitter, made their first Facebook post in three years and updated their website with a pretty cute landing page.
So who’s involved? Catherine Kelley, Condé Nast’s executive director of content development, is reportedly overseeing the project and they’ve tapped a blogger–Mat Sanders of Apartment Therapy–as an editor. No word yet on if they’re bringing any former Domino staffers back on. While former Domino editor Deborah Needleman confirmed no involvement, perhaps Condé could woo her back by offering her the same perks she had before. The WSJ editor recently spoke to The Cut about her pre-fashion week preparations, saying,
After I was excused from Condé Nast I had to find a cheap alternative to the salons I was using, because it’s no longer a billable expense. I used to have someone do hair and makeup before everything. Now I just wing it.
Poor Deborah. Perhaps had it not been for Needleman’s expensive salon treatments, Domino would never have folded. We kid.
