Fact of the Day: magazine
The word magazine also means 'storehouse', and all magazines are collections of articles and advertisements published at regular intervals. Often, the content of magazines does not date as quickly as that of newspapers. Magazines are printed on longer-lasting paper and cover every imaginable topic, ranging from very specialized scientific journals to more general lifestyle and fashion magazines. Features are the staple of magazines and vary according to the type of magazine. These articles look at a particular subject in depth, often accompanied by photographs or illustrations. The first magazine published in America was The American Magazine, or a Monthly View of the Political State of the British Colonies, edited by John Webbe and published in Philadelphia in 1741. It appeared just three days before Benjamin Franklin's 'General Magazine and Historical Chronicle for All the British Plantations in America'.
