A link to some interesting and very poignant photos taken at the Gourmet offices after the axe had fallen.

    Wow. Thanks for posting. I have a couple thoughts:

    First, I'd totally try to steal that Gourmet sign.

    Second I thought, how sad and depressing. Then I thought that this picture has been replicated a thousand times all over the country ie. offices closing/pink slips.

    Doesn't make it any less sadder though. Still can't believe Gourmet is gone...

      It is very sad indeed...my heart goes out to all that worked at Gourmet!

      I am so glad I did not throw out all the Gourmet Magazines I have collected through out the years, I have some dating back from 1960-present!

      Matter of fact i bought 2 of the last one!

        Wow. Intense. And weirdly, hauntingly beautiful, in a sad way. Thank you for sharing.

          I hope thet were allowed to take all the swag that they recieved. A small gift, but it would be appropriate.

            look at condé nast's loss in ad pages. while gourmet isn't singled out, if it was similar in scope, it was very bad: http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.com...
