British news and gossip magazine, one of popular issues in Britain, Tatler celebrates its 300th anniversary in November 2009!
A special issue, the November edition will appear Thursday. It’s the biggest in the history of Tatler magazine – it has 408 pages with 224 pages of ads.
The Queen’s profile in three variants graces the cover of December issue.
Tatler is one of the magazines which does not publish the material on the Web. It’s traditionally paper base.
I’m rather tired of all this business about the Internet,” said Patricia Stevenson, Tatler’s publishing director. “Magazines are wonderful things to have with you and to take around with you. I think Tatler is going to be around for another 300 years.”
The history of magazine began in 1709, when an edition named The Tatler came in London talking about news and gossip gathered from coffeehouses.
The current view of magazine developed after 1979, when Tina Brown became the editor.
Tatler has had the unique ability to bankrupt more people than any other magazine,” said Nicholas Coleridge, the managing director of Conde Nast in Britain and vice president of Conde Nast International
