MPA–The Association of Magazine Media has released its 2016/17 Magazine Media Factbook today, the definitive source of magazine media research. Since 1985, MPA has been compiling and packaging the most compelling and comprehensive facts and figures around magazine media. Derived from third-party sources and MPA’s own research and data collection, the new Factbook has nearly 100 pages of current and useful information. “Nothing informs a discussion better than solid data,” said MPA’s President and Chief Executive Officer Linda Thomas Brooks, “and the 2016/17 Magazine Media Factbook has plenty of conversation starters. The research continues to show that magazine media is the most trusted, inspiring and influential of all media, and several new studies provide even more proof of magazine media’s unique ability to drive sales.”
Nielsen Catalina Solutions (NCS), the leader in helping CPG marketers optimize return on advertising spend (ROAS) with in-store purchase data, presented the study, “Yes, Advertising Works. Now, What’s My ROAS Across Media Platforms?” at the Advertising Research Foundation's Audience Measurement 2016 conference. The study generated benchmarks that allow marketers to compare the return they should expect from every dollar of their cross-media, digital video, display, linear TV and magazine advertising spending. In its analysis, NCS worked with The Advertising Research Foundation, CBS Corporation, Meredith Corporation, Sequent Partners and a prominent technology and display advertising company.

“MAGNIFICENT”; “stunning”; “his single greatest painting”. Such are the superlatives that greeted “Blue Poles” by Jackson Pollock, one of America’s finest post-war artists, upon its arrival at London’s Royal Academy this month. The painting, on loan from the National Gallery of Australia, is on display for “Abstract Expressionism”, the most authoritative collection of the movement’s works that Britain has seen in half a century. Viewed alongside works from other towering figures of 1950s New York, including Willem De Kooning and Clyfford Still, “Blue Poles” evokes a past era when America was brimming with new-found creative confidence and possessed the will to defy past conventions.
