PRINT IS GOOD FOR MARTHA STEWART LIVING ACCORDING TO EDITOR ELIZABETH GRAVES

We are also a magazine about celebrating life, and that never falls out of fashion in good times or bad. It takes a village to help maintain print’s integrity and the power of the platform. But it is unparalleled when it comes to reader trust, and we need to keep that. I like many mediums, but print will always be my first and lifelong love.
