  1. 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...

    1. 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!

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

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

          1. 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...
