St John Magazine launches as a digital-only publication!
Some readers might remember a high gloss lux’ print magazine by the same title. First published in 2007 by MaLinda Media / MaLinda Nelson / former publisher of the St John Tradewinds newspaper. The Addy Award winning magazine enjoyed a strong following. While readers were mesmerized by the beautiful photography, wonderful writing and sophisticated presentation – the financial pressure of creating, printing, advertising and distributing … eventually shuttered the publication in 2014. This latest St John Magazine is a new venture from a new publisher – not connected to the original print magazine.

We’ve spoken with the publisher – and they have no plans to print the magazine. David Pinardi / publisher said “We’re embracing the digital age. While we understand that some people enjoy the tactile interaction of printed reading – the costs to create, design and distribute a printed magazine for a niche destination makes it cost prohibitive. We ask that readers have a look and see the advantages of digital vs print. You’ll find free access, unlimited distribution/sharing, rich multi-media including video, animations, VR / 360° spherical images and interactive maps all combine to make digital a much better presentation. We hope you’ll agree!”
