Madison magazine to close

In news just in, Madison magazine is to close down.

This from the magazine's Facebook status update just now:

It's a very sad day for us at madison. It was decided this morning that the June issue will be our last. I would like to thank my amazing, talented, hard-working team for being an inspiration to work with every day. And thankyou to our readers for your support over the past 8 years - we have loved creating for and hearing from all of you.

Bauer Media CEO Matthew Stanton said: ''The decision to close a title is never easy but after recent and lengthy discussions with our joint venture partner, Hearst Magazines International, the conclusion was sadly drawn that for Madison to continue was no longer a commercially viable option.

''I would like to express my respect for the Madison team for the way in which they continued to deliver a wonderful product while rumours of closure swirled around them. They should be proud of their professional and committed effort."

Here are some of my fave covers from the mag, which I was lucky enough to write for.

It's a sad day for Australian publishing. Madison magazine was one of the most innovative mags around. Did you read the mag?
