HARRIS PUBLICATIONS IS DISCONTINUING OPERATIONS

We got word from our colleagues in New York that Harris Publications is discontinuing operations citing the deleterious effect digital media has had on the printed press. The 39 year old publication was clearly, in all of our minds, the finest publisher in the genera. We’re sorry to see them go.

Official Statement

“It is with great sadness that we are announcing the closing of Harris Publications.  For nearly 40 years, Harris Publications has been a mainstay in enthusiast publishing. 

We are extremely grateful for the tremendous contributions of our employees, past and present.  The hard work and dedication of our creative, sales, circulation and operations teams and the talents of our freelance editors, writers, photographers and designers are what allowed us to continue delivering thoughtful and beautiful magazines to our readers.

The magazine publishing industry has been through turmoil in the face of the rapid ascendance of digital media, changing consumer content preferences, magazine wholesaler struggles and consolidation in the supply chain.  We have tried mightily to persevere against these forces, but have been unable to overcome these challenges.”
