RIP domino

I had heard rumours that one of my favourite magazines, dominio, was going out of business and when I went on the website I was dismayed to see the following message:

Dear readers
It is with very heavy hearts that we say farewell. Over the last 4 years, in 28 issues, we have done our best to create a great magazine. We started with a real idea—that style is for everyone—and tried to carry it out with stories that provide inspiration and empower you to act on it. From your tremendous response, we know that we were onto something. In this tough economy, however, we simply weren't able to get the advertising support we needed.
As domino evolved, we never lost sight of our original democratic premise. Looking back at the manifesto we published in the premiere issue, the first tenet of domino is still the truest: Home should make you happy. We hope we have played a part in making this come true for you.
All the editors of domino
I hate that we all know that this is another indication of these "hard economic times". A great publication, with great writers, great editors and great content, going out of business. So upsetting. Anyway, it is worth going to the website, which indicates that it will be live for the next few weeks, so you can retrieve what you'd like.
