Mad Men and Newsweek


2011 was a year of ups and downs.

I know it sounds a little "first world" but no MadMen on TV last year was definitely one of the downs.

Good news is it'll be back on our screens this year and to celebrate Newsweek magazine is producing a 60's style retro edition.

Back in the day Newsweek was at the forefront of news coverage with stories on civil rights, Vietnam and more.

I suspect this special edition will become something of a collector's edition and may well be the first of many special edition mags we see.

After all, with circulation on the decrease, publishers have to do something to bump up sales figures.

And maybe going back to the future is just what they need.
