The British are often imagined as newspaper addicts impatiently waiting for the postman to deliver their paper on Sunday morning. Yet, it would be wrong to believe that they do not share a similar interest for the booming world of the magazine press. As we will see, the magazines sector in Britain is extremely dynamic and magazine readers are more and more numerous across the country. But before I begin explaining the dynamics and characteristics of the British magazine press, I would like to draw your attention to the fact that what we call ?magazines? doesn't only refer to the numerous ?consumer magazines? (that is to say ?magazines grand-public?) one is likely to find in every news stand! Magazines are in fact to be grouped into several distinctive categories which I will mention later on.
As you can see on the outline which I've handed out, I will first be focusing on the two main characteristics of the magazine press: its dynamism and the main actors of the magazine industry. To continue, I will present the different types of magazines and the leading titles on the market.
